Ashley found this wonderful blog, Hands Free Mama and posted a few of her recent blogs around on social media. We are considering it a must read… just a simple reminder of the special time with our families. Time we won’t get back.
Here’s an excerpt…
“Each minute of every day, we are presented with a choice on how we spend our moments. We can either miss the moments or grasp them.
I’m going Hands Free. I want to make memories, not to-do lists. I want to feel the squeeze of my daughter’s arms, not the pressure of over-commitment. I want to get lost in conversation with my spouse, not consumed by a sea of unimportant emails. I want to be overwhelmed by sunsets that give me hope, not by extracurricular commitments that steal my joy. I want the noise of my life to be a mixture of laughter and gratitude, not the intrusive buzz of cell phones and text messages. I am letting go of distraction, disconnection, and perfection to live a life that simply, so very simply, consists of what really matters.
I’m going Hands Free, and if this sounds like a life you want to start living, come along.”
