What's important to you?
Well, I have just turned on my computer for the first time since Weds. I can't believe that I have been disconnected from my computer and email that long! I am soooooooooo grateful for my daughter Lauren, who wrote in my blog for the days I was gone. She is such an amazing writer, not sure if you guys are going to want to hear from me again? :) Lauren is in college, so you will have to wait till she graduates and maybe she will do her own blog. But I love what she wrote, how she thinks and definitely how she writes....so thanks again Lauren!!!
Today I read something that really struck home to me. It was this quote...
It is so true, when you really stop to think about it... you can always find time, or make time for something you really want and that is important to you. But when it is something that you really aren't interested in or something that really isn't important to you....the excuses just seem to come at an alarming rate. So it made me think, about some of my choices and my excuses and to stop and really look at them. I need to really spend time on things that really matter to me. I am famous for fretting over things that hurt my feelings or that upset me...instead of just letting them go. I need to take a stand on things, that don't bring me forward and upward. I need to stop letting things that don't really matter, drag me down.
So once again, I need to go back to the very beginning...my thoughts and how I react to them. Funny how you can be my age and realize that ....you still have so many more things to learn! Well, at least I am still learning, I think that is a positive step in the right direction!
Good night dear friends, hope you have a wonderful Sunday!

Alice came to a fork in the road. 'Which road do I take?' she asked.
'Where do you want to go?' responded the Cheshire Cat.
'I don't know,' Alice answered.
'Then,' said the Cat, 'it doesn't matter.”
