The Priority of Play


There are always lots of things to be doing...but one of the most important things for me is to protect my playtime with Owen. Here's a quote from David Livingstone, missionary to Africa:

“I often ponder my missionary career and in the consideration of my many imperfections not a single pang of regret arises in view of my conduct except I did not devote a special portion of time to play with my children. Generally, I was so exhausted by evening there was no energy for fun left. My children soon sprang up and left me conscious I had none to play with.”
