Work to live, not live to work

At the English-French language exchange today, I learned an interesting view on raising children.

                One of the French women told us that all her children still live at home. They are 21, 18 and 15. She has just one strict rule they must follow: no one is allowed to stay home on Saturday night. Unless they are having a party. She says they all work hard during the week and that it is a very important lesson to learn that the weekend is for having fun… not for working.

                That’s a lesson a lot of us could use. And one I hope we leave here having learned.

    I agree with this line of thinking. We Americans are too focused on work and not enough on enjoying our time here. BUT NO ONE HERE LISTENS….MONEY GRUBBING JERKS!!!
