Did You Make Fathers Day Breakfast?
Our children’s school has a wonderful tradition every year of the kids and helpers making breakfast the Friday before Father’s (or Mother’s Day).
Yes, it meant getting up a little earlier to get the kids to the school by 7.30am however it was well worth it. As they made a little presentation I looked around and noticed how close the fathers and their sons were to one another. Many of them had a hand on their shoulder demonstrating their love, what a great experience.
It made me wonder if we are committing to the important things in our lives or are we getting too busy with work and life. There were fathers, grandfathers and special father figures that were there spending time together. It would have been so easy to skip this morning fathers day breakfast with the common excuses of workload or not planning ahead.
So what are you not taking time to do? What should you be doing to let the important people in your life know that you care and appreciate them? It could be a family member, a distant relative, a co-worker or a friend. By taking a few minutes to connect and share time with them you are helping make a positive difference. Sharing a meal together, going for a walk or a bike ride, or just picking up the phone to let them know you were thinking about them. Simple gestures can make a big impact.
