We all get out breath. Shoe comes untied. Breaks are needed. Time outs, a part of the tag game of life.
My kids, they crave tag games. Fast. Furiously Fun. Its how they live life. Full Speed.
I sat watching, observing, absorbing, learning. Love it when this momma slows down enough to learn, even in a tag game.
As kids scamper, inevitably one pants the words TIME OUT, making the universal sign of T with lil hands. Time out granted. She catches her breath.
When she's refreshed, ready to give her all, she joyously proclaims TIME IN, dashing to join game once again.
Light bulb goes off in this momma brain. TIME IN! TIME IN! TIME IN! It brings the joy, announcing to all you are joining in the game again. And its been missing in our home.
We take time outs. Time outs when the kids can call them, when parent calls them, when mom needs them.
We all get out of breath. Emotions become untied. Breaks are needed. Time outs, a part of the tag game of life.
After the mistake admitted, apology spoken, the forgiveness asked & received, the solution agreed on ... TIME IN joyously declared.
We snuggle up, foot rub, scratch back, tickle match, extra hugs ... TIME IN! Its plum making a huge difference in the way we all enter back into the game of daily life.
Time In ... Bring on the tag game.
