This week I did a couple things to improve upon some areas in my life.

  • During the week I had asked my children to do a few things around the house.  Aislyn has been helpful and pleasant about her assistance.  I was thinking about how she has been doing well in school.  I remembered that I hadn't really said anything to her or rewarded her.  So, when I got home Thursday evening from work I had Aislyn get dressed and we went to the movies just the two of us and watched "Voyage of the Dawn Treader."  I explained to her why I was treating her to a movie.
  • While at work I pulled my calendar out and marked the days of birthdays and anniversaries for the month of January so that I can remember to send cards.  Now I need to take the time to make the cards.
  • Victor took the boys to the Tri-Stake Youth New Year's Eve Dance Friday evening.  Aislyn, Allisa and I went to my bedroom; ate See's chocolates and watched a couple movies until midnight.  We had fun.  It was good to spend time with them.
I guess I just need to slow down a bit; be mindful of my family and let them know that I am thinking of them.  I plan to spend more quality time with my children.  This will take practice.

How did you do this week?
