The start of a new work week gives us an opportunity to see if absence makes the heart grow fonder.
On the typical Monday morning, parents go off to work and children go off to school and everyone meets at the end of the day for dinner. Often we have spent wonderful weekends enjoying one another’s company, creating treasured family memories. Then by Sunday night, everyone is sick of each other and ready to get back to life. What if instead, we looked at the work week and school week as a break from real life – from family life. If we spend more time treasuring family time and enjoying the treasure of time with our loved ones and children, on Monday mornings when everyone departs, we would anxiously await the good time – Monday evening when we all come together again.
joined together again.
