In the blink of an eye

Today's topic is: A piece of advice you have for others. Anything at all.

(Please keep in mind that I realize that not everyone is this way. Just some people, so please don't get offended. I'm attacking no one.)

The world today is so gosh dang fast moving. There's no time anymore for family meals and family game night with the average household. Heck, the average household is a broken home, but that's beside the point.

Mothers are out in the work place along with their husbands, kids have school all day and often sports or some other after school activity. Then there's "me" time. The time when everyone gets to do what they want to go do. Often times, that leaves nothing for spending with the people who love you the most. If you didn't know this already, that's your family. Friends are fantastic blessings, and are to be cherished, but family is the biggest blessing of all. Those are the people who will be there with you for your entire life, no matter what. Blood is thicker than water, you know.

I'm not by any means saying that you shouldn't have friends. What I am saying, is there should be a bigger emphasis on family. Each person can have their job, school, lives, and still make time to be a family, but a lot of people don't. This is just yet another reason why I love homeschooling. Not to say that public schoolers can't have family time too (because they SO can, I've seen it many times), homeschooling is just practically set up for family time. Despite the fact that my dad is gone..  a lot.. I still see him quite a bit, because even on days when he goes to work he doesn't leave the house until at least 11. I wouldn't get that time with him if I was at school.

Anyways, this isn't about promoting homeschooling. This is about promoting family time. Please spend time with your family.. play a game.. eat supper... something. Before you know it.. your time with them will be gone.



  1. Loved this post Alana!! Family is so important. :) we often don't spend as much time with family as we should. Thanks for this post!

  2. such great advice! family time is so important since that is where you learn a lot of manners and respect for other people. it's definitely important to build those relationships in order to be able to function in a broken society and crazy culture. aaaaameeennnn on this one! yes! :)

  3. Although I agree that this is true for some (if not most), it definitely does not pertain to me. My family is very close, mostly because I am homeschooled, at least until my graduation party Saturday!



Jesus loves you & I do too!
Be blessed, but also be a blessing.
