A Fun Way to Slow Down as a Family... In today’s fast-paced world, it can be especially challenging to set aside quality family time.Wouldn't it be great if you could push a pause button on the clock and create more time with the ones you love? Looking at old pictures together or watching home videos or DVD’s can help you do just that. There's something about taking the time to reflect on the past that helps you to slow down and forget about your to-do list. Remembering birthdays, holidays, and vacations spent with family and friends can put your focus back on what really matters and give you a new appreciation for the special moments you've shared. My kids and I did this just the other day. It was such a sweet thing to watch a video of my son, back when he was two, singing a Veggie Tales song into the camera.And it made me smile when my daughter turned to him and said, as she watched too,“Look how cute you are!” We must’ve sat there for an hour “Awwwing” at all the memories we've shared. And when we were done, I was more thankful than ever for our special times together--including the time we'd just spent watching them. So the next time you feel overwhelmed by the how fast time is flying or how busy you are, pull your kids up next to you on the couch, pop in a DVD from when they were younger, or get out those old photo albums or CDs, and take a walk down memory lane. Not only can it help you slow down as a family and appreciate each other more, it can also create a slice of quality time well spent.
