I figure if someone misses me online, they know how to reach me in real life. And I hope a few people do reach me, as I also reach out. I'm starting with the most important people in my life...Cody and the kids. I want to make sure I am present and available to them in every way possible. Lucas asked me today "Do you know why I love Christmas so much?" I was 99% sure he was about to say it was because of the presents but instead he said, "Because it cancels everything." I was a little confused. What do you mean it cancels everything? He replied," It cancels school, it cancels work for Daddy, we can all be together." Yep. I want to be together. I want to know people and I want people to know me. It's not about a 25 word status or a check in at In N Out Burger...it's about my heart and the hearts of those around me.
I may miss the instant connection I can get, almost a quick fix, by checking Facebook...but I am hoping I find a sense of calm in focusing my energy on deeper interactions. I don't think everyone would have to cancel their account in order to do this, but I do. That's just me at this point in my life. And if you'd like to know more, let's meet for a cup of coffee.
