Stay Home

Wanna do something radical?

Just say no.

Skip the neighbor kid’s recital.

Blow off the next potluck.

Miss a mid-week service.

Go ahead, embrace your inner hermit.

Cuddle on the couch.

Play a board game.

Stay home.

The world will be waiting tomorrow.

      Stacy, I always smile when you leave a message or email that you didn’t show up somewhere because your hubby had a day off and you guys needed a day with daddy. LOVE THAT!

  2. YES!!!!!

  3. I really wish I had done this more the past week. It’s needed.

  4. love this!

  5. We were just discussing the need for a Sabbath this weekend – hubby says God designed us to take a break for a reason, yet I find it hard to force myself to do this sometimes.

  6. It’s a Tuesday and so far today, girls have jumped into bed with Daddy and I for monthly “pinch and a punch for the first day of the month game” followed by tickles and giggles. Then we decided that it was such a lovely day that we would go off on a picnic and play mini golf … yeah! We have been studying Scotland, so bonus score me, with golf being invented there … lol!

  7. Absolutely! This post is a gift.

  8. Thanks so much for this great post! Simple and yet so meaningful.

  9. I absolutely agree with you Sara that this great post is a gift for many blog users. Thanks a lot to the author!

  10. LOVE this. We definitely have at least one of these days a week! BTW, I found you via Many Little Links, and I’m so excited to become a regular follower. :)

  11. Gosh – what a timely reminder. Thank you. I am just looking at my diary for next week and it is filled right up. I have got to reign back on our outside activities. We have a stack of board games covered in dust (ahem!) and a lovely read-aloud we are half way through. I am staying in today!!
