Knowing better

On Sunday I was very lazy and wanted to curl up in bed with some knitting and reading. My daughter had other plans for us. She wanted to take pictures of the wildflowers popping up in the yard and to hang out with some ladybug friends. I tried to make an excuse to not go outside. I was hell bent at that point on soaking up some quality "me" time. She accepted my excuse and as I was walking back to my room I stopped myself. Was I crazy not to take my daughter up on some quality "us" time?? I'm nuts for not wanting to soak up some sun and nature and daughter time! Knitting and reading could most certainly wait. As much as I wanted to hit the mattress and zone out it wasn't what I really needed. I needed to be with her. And from the look on her face when I said, "C'mon. Let's go!" I knew I had made the right decision for my heart and my soul.

It is so hard not to take time with them for granted isn't it. They keep us busy and make us crazy so I just stick with early bed time so I can get my knitting in. Hope you had a blast.

I completely agree. They certainly pull at your heart strings in a good way. :)
