Family Isn’t Just an Important Thing, It’s Everything!

“Family is not an important thing. It’s everything.” ~Michael J. Fox

My family is goofy. They’re fun. They’re moody, just like me. I don’t pay them enough attention. I look at my “priorities” and daily chores and I go at them. I fix B’s lunch, I get the kids breakfast, I get Bug to school, buy groceries, I work, do laundry, cook dinner, clean up the house.

I do everything mentioned above for my family, to take care of them. But I forget to enjoy them. I forget what family means. They are my everything. The dishes can wait. Work can wait. Family isn’t just an important thing, it’s everything!

    Shoot, good reminder that we should be enjoying them, too, not just “doing”. Why is that so hard to remember?
