It seems that as we get older, whether you are a parent or not, it is our time that becomes one of the most valuable things in our life. Has this ever happened to you?…After a long day at work you arrive home exhausted. As you walk through the door you think of just unwinding from the stress of the day, relaxing and having a moment to yourself. Unfortunately the reality is usually a bit different. Maybe instead as you walk in your wife says, “Can you take out the garbage? Oh, and the washing machine stopped working if you can take a look at that. Billy needs to be picked up from basketball in 15 minutes and you need to help Maggie with her science project. Oh, and the light on my dashboard came on that says I need air in my tires.”
We have all been there. We have all been frustrated. We ask ourselves, what about me? There are ways to make this fact of life better and we can discuss that at a meeting but take a moment to listen to this relevant 4 min. clip from Fr. Larry Richards homily.
