I say this a lot. We have plenty of time. Even when it doesn’t seem like we do, I say it. I don’t like myself very much when I’m “so busy!” When I get in that frame of mind, I know I’m not managing my time well. We have plenty of time reminds me that I choose what I do and there is time for the things that are really important. It makes my priorities clearer.
We flew kites today. It was after Phoebe was home from dance class and Lucy had returned from softball practice. We hadn’t had dinner, yet. But we’d had the kites for days and the kids had been asking to fly them and they wanted to do it with me.
There was plenty of time.
