It is still a bit surreal for Christina and me to think that all our kids are at school for the whole day. Gone are the days where we had to pick up the kids in the middle of the day, which usually broke the rhythm and the flow of the day – especially when we were in a zone taking care of something.
Today, Christina had to stop by the Transformation Center for something and then she stopped by the office. As we were talking, we decided to spontaneously go out for a late breakfast and just hang out to talk. A part of me was thinking about all the stuff that I had to take care of, but I realized that these moments are special moments that might not come again; therefore I just went for it. At the end of our time together, I realized that it was good to do things out of the ordinary.
As we were walking back to the T-Center, we were talking about how we felt like young again. I guess as we get older we lose some of the spontaneity.
Another axiom I learned today: “Spontaneity sparks something special with your spouse.”
