I love kids, especially my kids. Therefore when I came home from work to a note that said they were out for the afternoon and that I should take the opportunity to nap or paint, I felt incredibly conflicted. There has been no time for napping or painting of late. Nevertheless, I was actually irritated at my wife for depriving me of time with the family. After ten minutes in my studio, I sheepishly realized the gift Laura had given me. Time by myself is a precious commodity these days. By the time my family returned, I was refreshed and ready to jump into action with a happy heart.
How do you respond to the precious commodities in your life?
