Taking Care of the VERY Important

Tonight, after homeschooling most of the day and working on some projects for school that I needed to have ready (laminating, etc.)...I was pretty discouraged.  I was on the couch wore out and my daughter came up to me and saw that I didn't want to talk - then I told her why I was down, how I didn't get things done today - the dishes and the laundry.  She put her hand on my face and said the sweetest words: "Momma, you did get something done - you did something VERY important!"  I started crying because she was SO RIGHT!  It was so wonderful and we cuddled.  Homeschooling her, spending time with her and my husband is something VERY important!  Then my husband came over and told me how much he thinks of me and well - I just feel so overjoyed and who cares about the dishes and laundry that didn't get done today!?  The VERY important was taken care of......God and family.

A lot of times Katie tells me how much she loves me and I tell her I love her and then she responds: "I know you love me Mommy because you spend time with me and homeschool me."

These are the things that make life wonderful...........having your own children and husband praise you and knowing you are doing VERY important things each day! ;-)

That is so true Bev, sometimes i get so busy doing things around the house when i realize that my husband just wants me to sit next to him and spend some time with him. It reminds me of the Martha & Mary story! Spending time and listening to family & friends is more important than a few chores, sometimes we get so busy doing instead of being. That is so sweet that Katie reminds you of the great job you are doing:)

Bev that is so adorable. It is times like these that I wish I was able to have a child but God knows. Your daughter is so sweet and very smart indeed.

I too struggle with balancing my to do list vs taking care of the important things in life. Thank you for the great reminder!
