Normally when traveling I go with my family. My husband takes care of all the trip details. When I’ve gone alone something always happens. I have almost missed flights, taken the wrong exit to an unfamiliar airport, and even forgotten my wallet-with my ID! There’s a feeling of security being with loved ones. Stick together and as the Partridge family used to sing, “There’s nothing better than being together. Come on get happy!”
Family time meets the basic needs of security and belonging. Work some fun family time into your schedule this week.
