On these Sunday afternoons at home….
there won't always be the careless laughter of our teenagers sprawled out in the living room goofing off… But, there will always be dirty dishes. There won't always be toddlers trotting in and out of sight flirting for our adoration... But, there will always be floors to sweep.
There won't always be parents and grandparents to reminisce with and learn from... But,there will always be garbage to take out.
Our families grow and change, we fall prey to the busyness of life... the years disappear like water down a drain…soon our children will be grown... starting their own busy lives and growing families. They grow up, our parents and grandparents grow old... sometimes death steals our loved ones far sooner than we'd ever thought. And we will long to have those Sunday afternoons back to live over again...in hopes to slow down, be there, instead of rushing through... Oh how these precious family moments are so quickly fleeting. So, put down the dish towel, the dirty dishes can wait.
