When enjoying a new experience as a family, both my husband and I will often snap pictures on our phones to capture these special moments.
This morning was no exception. We were trying a new breakfast place and were able to snag the one table that had swings for chairs. My eight year old was thrilled to be eating his eggs and rice while teetering back and forth. I was less enamored as I tried to sip my hot coffee. And all the while, my husband snapped pictures.
In an exasperated tone my son gave us both some very sound advice, “Don’t enjoy things far away. Enjoy them now.”
And with those wise words, we both tucked our phones away and tucked into breakfast.
