Last Sunday, our church celebrated “Father’s Day.” A special time dedicated to all the fathers. Our young people and young adults group prepared a short presentation for them. My hubby was not able to attend the special activity because he was invited as a speaker in another church. I just received the gift (from Starbucks) that they were giving out to fathers. In my heart, I am thankful for an opportunity to be a part of a family that values intimate relationships.
My sons and their father shared a strong bond together. There might be time that due to busyness, my husband forgot to spend some time with them. Both of them will surely complaint. Then their father will find some ways to make up to them. Sometimes, the three of them will just go out together for what they call, “boy’s day out.” Or even just spend time together watching their favorite movie: Lord of the Rings, even tho’ they have seen it a hundred times over, having a good laugh together or simply having some wrestling matches, pillow fights and tussles in the bedroom. I am at peace, knowing my husband take time to be with our kids.
It is really true that for children, love is spelled T.I.M.E. All the riches of this world could never buy back the time you lose. One need simply to be there! To experience the delight and pleasures of seeing your children grow. I am so glad, we decided not to stay longer in Thailand – but to be with them.
