100 Days of Journal Prompts: Day 77

Each day, laptop and children permitting, I’ll share a prompt that’s been on my mind, and a few of my thoughts.

You are welcome to share your own perspective in the comments, or just journal it out!

What is my favorite way to spend quality time with others?

Besides cookies (πŸ˜‚), my favorite love language is quality time!

And yet, often I find myself falling into the trap of “autopilot”. Maybe Joe and I watch a show together, or do our own things separately.

I even do this with my kids!

Later, I wake from my stupor and realize that I didn’t invest.

But, these last few months I’ve been getting better at consciously being present with my loved ones.

Sometimes we read books. Sometimes we bake or cook together. Sometimes, we go for a walk or a drive and just chat.

At the end of the day, those are the moments I’m most grateful for.

How about you? What is your favorite way to spend time with family or friends?

      1. Thank you. πŸ™‚ I actually had an idea for something outdoors that I might be able to invite friends to in a few weeks. But, to add to all the sad news I’ve been getting lately, my grandmother passed away yesterday, and these plans I was thinking about making might conflict with plans for whatever kind of service we might be able to have for her, which is going to have to wait a few weeks until the church is done with Easter.

        (I’m okay so far. Her generally declining health over the last few months, and especially over the last couple weeks, have prepared me for this. It was not unexpected.)
