The hands by which I take a hold of heaven

What was I thinking when I wrote this post?

It’s been 4 days since my family and I decided to voluntarily isolate yourself at home, and it has been a fantastic experience so far. That got me thinking about the unique perspective my child has about the world and how lucky my wife and I are to experience parenthood together with her. 

What have I learned about parenthood recently?

I’m really enjoying being creative to keep my daughter busy having fun at home and at the same time being able to work remotely effectively. Here a list of new things we have started doing together to take advantage of the situation:

  • We found a youtube channel for kids called Little Sports to spend time together exercising at home and for three days in a row my daughter is the one asking for it (we exercised 3 times together today).  
  • We are planning to set her a desk in the living room, so she could have a special place to draw, play, play with puzzles, and do whatever artistic activities meanwhile me and my wife are working.
  • We will start a daily schedule for all three, to be able to share shores and keep ourselves busy, connected and having fun while staying at home.

That has made me wonder:

  • How many different things could we do as parents to get the best out of parenthood?
  • What an amazing opportunity to explore new things and have fun together with our daughter?
  • How wonderful is to see her growing every single day while working? 
  • Would I be as enthusiastic as I am today within 20 days from now?

What if …..

  • I embrace the joy of being a parent that fulfills my heart today to learn from it and discover new possibilities?
  • We take this moment as a great opportunity to get closer to our child?
  • We spend quality time together as a family and have fun through it?

My invitation is to acknowledge that we are lucky to experience parenthood

Now that you know a little bit more about myself, I invite you to take a moment to look around, staying curious, being brave, spreading love to reflect about the following questions:

  • What other parents in your family are doing to bond with their kids?
  • How could you be the best parent for your child?
  • What actions are you taking to appreciate your wife/husband/companion/friend/partners efforts to be the best parent they could?
  • What If I tell you that your children are the hands by which you take a hold of heaven? What would that mean to you and how life would be different?

Stay at home, keep yourself safe, and remember that:

We are incredibly better together, today more than ever!

Jesus
