Now, I’m all for multi-tasking but sometimes it gets me into trouble! Recently, while getting gas, I was trying to do so many things at once that I almost pulled away with the nozzle still attached to my car! Multi-tasking really does help me cross more things off of my to-do list. But, I’ve found it’s not a good habit when I’m with my family.
A wise friend once said to me, “Lysa when you’re with those you love - be there.” So, when my husband comes home from work, I try get off the phone. When I pick my kids up from school, I give my full attention to the many details of their day.
And each morning I try to take time to read the Bible and talk to God first; even before throwing in a load of laundry or checking my e-mail. Then I can say with confidence to those I love, I’m really here for you.
