What's important...

Wow, it has been a long time...
and truth be told,  I am Okay with that...
I seem to be letting a lot of things slide...
some I am not Okay with...
I should pick a new word this year, but I'm thinking "present" needs to sink in a tad bit more...

Life around here is crazy, and it doesn't show any signs of changing...
at least for a while...

Last month life has given me a chance to reflect and take notice of what is truly important...

A funeral of a sweet friend, a young wife, a mom. She leaves five children, two who are still babies, and a grieving husband...
I asked why...
Other stresses in life were put into perspective as I watched her family grieve for their wife and mother...

What is important...
A bigger and better home? a new car? a larger bank account? all the debt that goes with it?

What is important...
Two things...
Two things that at times have bounced around on the "to do" list because I know that they will always be there...
Two things...

My relationship with the Savior Jesus Christ...
My Family...
These are the things that matter...
These are what make me be a better person, friend, wife, and mother...
Changes have and will be made...
As I ponder a bit more on this subject enjoy a moment in time of what is important to me...
