A working mom like me whose more than 50% of its "24 hours" is spent mostly away from home longs to spend the remaining hours of the day at home -- chilling, relaxing or spending a quiet time may it be alone or with the family.
or some weekend quiet time with my daughters
I realize that because of our own "busyness" and preoccupation with a lot on non-essential things, we are afraid to slow down and just stop whatever we're doing. We are so used to the noise around us that even if there are opportunities to just be quiet, stay still and do nothing, we refuse to see or grab these opportunities because we feel uncomfortable. We are just not used to the "hush".
Spending quiet and relaxing weekends at home have done wonders to me. It recharges me; it prepares me for the coming 5-day work week ahead of me; it allows me to quiet my mind and my soul; it enables me to reflect on the most important things in life; it makes me appreciate life more and all that God has blessed me and my family with. It's empowering because it is during these times that I get to listen to what God is telling me.
When I am empowered, I am at my best and able to give my best at home. I am stress-and-worry-free because of the needed "hush" I savor and experience during the weekends. And who doesn't like to live a worry-free life, right? If I am happy, my husband is happy and our kids are happy. It makes for a happier home. It makes for wonderful memories at home. That's the best thing I get when I allow myself to spend a quiet and relaxing weekend at home.
