Let’s face it. Life in reality gets busy and busier as we get older and older. I recognized that priorities in life changes as we age whether we like it or not. The typical sleep-eat-play-repeat routine when we were young was no longer in our system. It certainly changed to sleep-eat-work-repeat scheme. In my case, each of my family members work five times in a week so we didn’t usually bond as much as we wanted to.  And by that, I realized that we spent most of our time outside of our home which means less chance to bond as a family. 

DSCF1727     DSCF1813Last October 2016, I settled on booking a flight for my family to Cebu without asking them their free schedule or day offs. I know asking them one by one would end up with nothing or cancellation. So I just booked right away and just hoped and prayed for them to say yes. I’m very thankful to the Lord that He allowed us to match our schedules for our out of town trip as a family. DSCF1828DSCF2170

I realized that by traveling it helps our family to reconnect in a way that nothing else does. Instead of rushing to finish tasks, appointments or to get another project done, we were able to simply relax and enjoy being with each other. It’s great to bond again with the family and connect with each other on a level that doesn’t always happen at home.
