Tuesdays With Traci

Tonight I went over to a friend’s house and had some accountability time. It was wonderful. She is younger than me and I got to see much of myself in her. It was neat to see where I’ve come and how I can share with her from my past experiences. It didn’t take long, it didn’t cost any money, but I came home with a different outlook. When I got home my husband sent me directly up to the girls’ room. My oldest, who is rarely affectionate, was crying for me to give her a hug and kiss. With me not being there they actually missed me.

In leaving my family I become a better wife and mother for them.

The person who comes home acts and thinks different that the one who left AND I’m missed and appreciated more when upon my return.

So if you left for a week or two you'd come back and be a REALLY good mom, right?

That's what I'm thinking. Cruise anyone?
