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! ;-)
