There are moments in each of our lives when we are reminded about those things which are truly the most important. I have had 8 hours to reflect on the things that are most important to me - And, although I love stitching, & I so enjoy gardening - I find that in the truest sense it is the people in my life that I adore the most. It is my wonderful husband & my 4 children that bring me the greatest pleasure - It is my friends & family that bring me the greatest joy. It is with these precious people that I should always focus my greatest love and admiration - And it is with them that I should focus my greatest attention.
But at times i fear I do not always do that - when I have mounds of laundry, when the sink is full of dirty dishes, when the bathroom needs cleaning, & the lawn needs mowing-
When the budget is too tight, or the floor needs mopping, dinner needs cooking, or the dogs need bathing.
When I've worked long hours, labored for little glory & find myself thrown too many curves
It is then that I lose focus-
Tonight when my husband called me to ask me for help
When I saw the smashed vehicle he stood beside
It was then that I was reminded of how very much i loved him & how very precious are the moments we have.
I have just spent hours in the ER - Not complaining that I spent HOURS in the ER, But being thankful that I shared those precious hours with someone I could have lost.
Thankful that his angels were around him & very thankful that the accident -that was not his fault - did not steal him from me - Thankful that the curve he was thrown was not his last moment - was not my last moment with him &
the children that are sleeping peacefully in their beds- the clothes I am washing -the dishes that I am doing & the dogs that met me at the door when I returned home from this exhausting day.
I think I am back on track
