Ditch All the Stuff

Our lives have become so cluttered with stuff.  We are bogged down with having to have it all, keeping up with the Jones’, the latest and greatest.  We don’t talk anymore.  I remember just sitting around after dinner talking and laughing, playing cards and board games.  Now my kids are texting me from the other room to see what’s for dinner. NO social skills. People wonder why they are miserable.  Everyone is behaving like they are on their own deserted island.  We were created by God to exist in community. We are supposed to be social, support one another in joys and sorrows.  Now we are texting people our condolences regarding a loss instead of bringing over a meal and sitting down to lend an ear or picking up the phone to talk.

Ditch the stuff, people.  Interact with each other.  Talk with your loved ones.  Put on the coffee and enjoy one another. Tell me what’s going on in your life…I want to hear from you!

Wishing you love, balance and peace!

    Steph, “ditch all the stuff” is so true. I remember dropping in with my mom on my Aunt Mary’s and for sure there would be someone else dropping in. It was fun. The coffee would be put on before your butt hit the chair and the time would go by talking about what was going on in everyones lives. I do miss those days. It drives me nuts when my kids text me instead of call.
    Maybe one of these days I’ll drop by for a cup of coffee 🙂
