priorities and perceptions change

Thursday, December 15, 2011

I have had a few bad days - so I have been reflecting on how my priorities have changed as well as my perception of things.

One of my children pointed out to me that - what she thought was REAL as kid - she has since discovered that as an adult she realizes that her perception as a child was totaly different from today at 27. doh.. I have been trying to teach my four kids this since like forever.. doh! Well three of the four isnt bad right? right!

I am letting go of the little things and really trying to be thankful for what I do have. I no longer want to think about what I could have or done differently. I just want to continue to move forward and let go of the things that I cannot change.

My priorities are my parents. If life goes according to God's plan - believe me I know that it does not always happen - I buried a baby, but if it goes according to the way He planned it, my children and grandchildren have more years left than my parents.
I do plan time with my kids and grandkids, but my parents supersede most everything else in this life at this time - other than my time with God. He is first and foremost in my every day life. Without Him I am just DUST.

My third priority is my health and working out, eating right, finding balance psychologically.

So God, Family and Health. What more could a person want?

    Sounds good jean ,you know i buried a baby, it was a boy too. My first born. I think as Christians, and women we think we are not supposed to have feelings that aren't always up beat. If we do we feel guilty. We must learn to get over the guilt and say hey i dont feel good today or i dont want to do whatever. We are human and a child of God's and he knows us inside and out, so he can say Rest My Dear Child Just Lean On Me.
    I was care giver for my Mom and Dad. And it can be stressfull on your health, but it is worth it. Its like my son Scott is here for me now, and i am so thankfull.
