I struggled to find a good topic for a COT so I decided just to share what has been on my heart and bothering me for about a month now. My current home life is a bit chaotic with 5 kids and 4 playing higher level select baseball/softball. Most days we are just trying to stay afloat and make sure everyone is fed and makes it to their numerous activities. I feel like I have been neglecting the relationship with my M (wife). The days become long and challenging and most days and weekends we are dividing and conquering to keep the ship afloat. I am reminded that the reason they are called our M’s is because this is our most important relationship and the foundation for the rest of our home life. I made the conscious decision to try to be better in this area, even during our crazy busy time of the year. We are trying to carve out some time every day and also plan some date nights and possibly a vacation. I encouraged the PAX to do the same.
