Getting Away - Heartfelt Inspiration
Hello, Lisa here! We just got back from a weekend of camping with friends and it was nice to have a little get-away. I feel like our everyday lives are so busy and structured all the time and trying to get your schedule to mesh with a group of friends' schedules to have time together seems impossible! So, even though we had to plan this trip month's in advance it was rewarding. All the electronic gear was either left at home or out of signal range (I think a few of the our gang were going through iPhone withdrawasl though, lol) We talked, played games and went for hikes. The bigger boys found a bunch of other kids to play with and they all had a grand time. We got dirty and mosquito bitten. My youngest son woke up at 4am the first night and never went back to sleep. But it was fun. I guess my encouragement to all of you is to take time out of life, unplug, and work on building relationships with those friends and family members in your lives. In the end, that's what is important.
