F is for Fun, Food, Flexibility and Future
F is for FUN
One thing we have learned over the years is to have FUN.
When I think back to our early years of marriage it seemed we were always busy working or trying to solve problems or just plain surviving.
One of the things we seemed to have lost was having fun. I remember once when my therapist asked me what I was going to do with three hours of free time as the boys were going to a birthday party. I replied “clean my house.” And she challenged me to actually do something FUN with my time and I could not think of anything to go. As time has passed and we have lost loved ones over the years I started to reflect about time spent with the loved ones and it was really hard to remember fun things we did together. I used to be a perfectionist about keeping our home spotless and always feeling like I had to be doing something instead of just relaxing, or going for a walk or spending time with a friend. Now I plan things to do that are fun to do by myself or with friends or family.
Spending time with our family.
Having coffee with special friends.
What have you done that was fun lately?
F is for FOOD & FELLOWSHIP
We love to have friends over and go visit them in their homes, go to potlucks and Fellowship with friends.
Here’s a peak at two of our most recent time of being with family & friends, sharing in a meal and lots of Fellowship.

Have you spent time with friends or family just enjoying being with each other?
F is for FLEXIBILITY
Something I have learned over the years is to be Flexible, don’t sweat the small stuff, know that God tells us he is in control as shared in Jeremiah 29:11
