When we look back on what will probably be a one to two year worldwide episode of tragedy and triumph, I pray that some aspects of the “old life” don’t come back.
I think people are actually starting to realize, especially families, what they have been missing.
We had been missing out on our children’s lives and not necessarily learning what their true talents and gifts are.
School teachers and team sports took all their time. And we only spent time with them for a couple hours per day. Rushing to get them ready for school and rushing to feed them, get homework done and get ready for bed.
Team sports and school sports are fun and good for physical health. But now I see that maybe one team sport per year is fine. And individual sports like running, biking and circuit training are things that we can do with our children and teach them lifelong healthy habits.
Also, I actually don’t miss being on the road every day driving to work when it can be done at home. It’s good for my budget to eat at home, save gas, and save wear on my vehicle. And it’s safer to not be on the road as often.
