Day #131: Give Attention to Your Kids

Day #131: Give Attention to Your Kids 3

Lebanon, PA

Today, I spent most of the day with my two girls. In the morning the three of us went down to the family center here at our campground while Stephanie worked.

Day #131: Give Attention to Your Kids 4

The family center has a little area with toys and books for small children. While we were there, another little girl arrived. I read books to the three girls, played Tea, and chatted on and off with the other little girl’s great-great-grandmother.

Around noon we headed home to eat lunch with Stephanie. After lunch, Stephanie wrote some more while the three of us went swimming, played on the campground’s playscape, and took a hike around the lake to look for goose feathers.

Today reminded me that the most important thing I have to give my girls isn’t toys or games or something sweet to eat – it is my time.


  1. You said it Tim – the most important thing we have to give our kids is ourselves – our time, our dreams, our passions, our zest, our attention, our love.
