Brothers & sisters…, for us who live in a big city such as Jakarta, time is so precious and so limited. It’s true that we all have the same amount of time i.e. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, but each of us has different things in our plates to be done.
Each day I go to the office at around 5:45 am and arrive back home at around 8: pm. When I go to work the only person I say good bye is my wife, because the rest of the family are still asleep. When I get home at night I hardly see any other person other than my wife. Even with my wife we only have a few hours before we have to go to bed and sleep. So, to be honest, for me there is not enough quality time with my family.
Well, most of us probably have the same sort of experience, need more time with our love ones. How do we coupe with that situation? Brothers & sisters.., to me it is very important that we set aside some times for our family. Take a day or two during the weekend to go out with our family. If possible go to the nice places, to the beach, to the park, or some other interesting places, where we can be one as family and not bothered by the routines such as works.
Last weekend 16/6/2012, I had a chance to be away from home and spend the weekend with my wife and friends. Eventhough it was only one day I got a chance to be alone with my wife in a nice place, away from home and routines. We got a chance to talk just two of us, took pictures and had fun together. If it is only with your wife, can it be done at home? Yes, absolutely..! But a different place in a different situation does make a difference, at least that what I feel. Being in a romatic place with your love one will certaily be different with being at home with your love one.
Brother & sisters.., if you have time to be with your family, use it the most. Have fun with your love ones. If you don’t have the time, make one. I know we are all busy, but always remember that our love ones need us. Let’s enjoy the time we have with the ones we love.
