This past weekend, my mom and sister came to visit Spring Arbor University! Since my sister wants to play basketball for the SAU women’s basketball team next year, she and my mom came to support them on Saturday afternoon. After the game, I was surprised to see their arms filled with gifts. Once we got to the room, we proceeded to celebrate a late Christmas (gift from my aunt), early Valentine’s day, and an early birthday.
But the best part of the weekend wasn’t the gifts. Rather, the best part was spending time with my mom and sister and receiving a box my dad personally designed for my 21st birthday. We had a wonderful time catching up, shopping, going out to dinner with my boyfriend, and attending the play You Can’t Take It With You at Spring Arbor University.
The point I wanted to make is that amidst holidays and special occasions, it is important to remember the people who are special in your life. Don’t get me wrong, I really appreciated the gifts but more than anything, I loved spending time with my family and friends. So treasure those who are close to you and enjoy the rest of your week!
