Mothering Means More Than Meals

Next to protecting my relationship with my darling husband I need to include plans for quality time with my children especially my son who still lives at home.

He needs special care at the moment because he has been ill since Christmas and his symptoms are quite complicated and make life difficult because he can sleep anything up to 20 hours a day on a normal day (he has even had some days when he has only managed to stay awake for about an hour).

I am having to make sure that we make the most of the time when he is awake. It would be so easy to just manage the practical stuff, sometimes it is hard enough just to get enough food and drink into him in a day and this can take over.

I want our relationship to be more than that! This means planning round getting him to church, reading the bible together, helping him to do some school work when he can and balancing all this out with trying to have some fun times with him even if this is only watching a film or having a joke together.
