Have you noticed that people are angry these days? Hardly anyone says good morning with a smile, these days, and it be reciprocated. Have you ever had a job where they required you to say good morning to each person as they came into the office? That is when the good morning to family and friends probably ended because it was forced.
I remember a job that I had, where every morning before I went in the building I would walk around the building and pray for a peaceful day.
Remember when you would sit and talk to a good friend shot the breeze. A part is from the rush of trying to keep up, with the everyday things in life. Do you feel as though something is missing from your life? Have you noticed the shift in the things that we use to enjoy?
What about your wife does she seem happy? Are your children enjoying the same type of happiness that you had as a child? Do you remember when families use to play board games together? These days the only time that you communicate with your children is when they are asking for something. Where are the friends like you had as a child that would always be around?
Everyone today, including the kids talk to friends on the Facebook, Instagram, Tweeter, or Snapchat. God, for bid you ask them about who they are chatting with. You can be sitting in the same room with your family for two hours and never speak to one another. Now if you had a video on You Tube than you would have their attention.
I was talking to someone the other day, and he was talking about all the work he had to do around the house, in fact; he needed a schedule. I listened thinking with only three people in one house, your child living with you is over sixteen. Your wife works just as hard, at home as at her job. How much of a mess can three grown people make? I stopped listening as I thought, most people take only one day for cleaning with young children to the house. Back in the days, most people had lots of kids; they had to walk to school the father would work; the mother would be at home. I don’t ever remember my mother or any mother complaining about the house cleaning as an issue. The values in life have really changed.
