I’m really looking forward to this week – just got back from an inspiring and, dare I say it, life changing weekend in Germany and Poland with the YMCA and now it’s just me and Anya at home together for the whole of half-term!
It’s going to be a great week, I have one or two ideas for what to do but I thought I’d ask Anya what she wanted to do. Bless her, her answer was, “You know when we go to the cash and carry….can I ride on top of the trolley!?” I’m really proud of her that she is satisfied with such simple pleasures.
We’re off to go and get an extra ingredient for baking now and I will do my best to give her a wonderful, memorable week. I really believe that some of the best gifts we can give our kids are shared memories together. They can be simple, silly times together but I think they are worth so much more than expensive presents.
We’re also both looking forward to having the luxury of time so that we can do some Bible study and praying together. Such a privilege to be a dad and I really don’t want to take it for granted.
