Time Together

After not seeing each other for three weeks, the kids steamrolled into the house like laughing, giddy, smiling hurricanes, with time to make up for.  One evening, I was debating whether to head to the gym for some extra workout time after I finished an exercise video at home.  I was sitting on the couch, basically talking to myself when I muttered, “Do I feel like going to the gym?”

Sunflower answered for me right away.  “No,” she said emphatically.  “We will miss time together if you go.”

Who could argue with that?  I skipped the gym, got on the floor, and played with them instead.  I can always make up time at the gym later.  I can’t make up time with the kids.

I am endlessly trying to make sense of a world that has completely and unapologetically lost its mind.
