What Matters

You know what I think I've decided......

I think it doesn't matter.

  • It doesn't matter if my house is a wreck.
  • It doesn't matter if I don't cook on a regular basis.
  • It doesn't matter if I keep my car spotless.
  • It doesn't matter if I have a wad of cash on hand at all times.

But what does matter....

What DOES matter is....

  • That I love my children.
  • That I'm there for them.
  • That I care enough to take them aside and talk through decisions with them when they're about to make a dumb one....or worse....when they've already made a dumb one, and I need to get them back on the right path.
  • That I laugh with them.
  • That I connect with them.
  • That I hug them and kiss them and put my arm around them everyday.
  • That I make them aware that they're my EVERYTHING.
  • That I take the time for them while they're still here with me.
  • That there's no question EVER that they're each in my heart.

THAT's what matters!

You're keeping eternal relationships in mind, and that's what we all need to remember. Thanks, Jules.
