Going to New York City anytime is exciting. Just ask one of the 61.5 million tourists that visit every year. My husband had never been to New York City before so he wanted to see as much of the city as possible in the short time we had there. The wind was brisk, making it miserable some of the days to walk through the city for long. There was so much to see, so little time, and it was cold. My husband is a good guy and all but being the true southerner he is, he and the chilly weather were not a good combination. The odds were working against us a little. So, how did we still see the city and stay warm? By riding, THE RIDE!
Life is crazy enough as it is but then add children and life picks up tremendously. It is SO easy to get distracted with life that you lose sight of what your true main focus should be. No one grows up saying they can’t wait to get married to have a miserable marriage. No one grows up with the idea that they want a house full of wild, rebellious children. Yet, so often that is what happens. In my almost 18 years of marriage, I have found that when life gets cluttered with a super busy lifestyle, your focus gets off of the important things. That leads to a mundane marriage or even an unhappy marriage. The children become out of control from the combination of a lack of communication between parents and decreased attention given to the children. So, what is the solution when life seems to be too busy?! Time away!
