Are We Focusing on What Really Matters


November 19 2014:

I was gifted a ticket to a dinner event tonight which I joyfully accepted and attended. I really love talking with others and having conversations that go deeper than “How are the kids? and How are things going?” I love asking people questions beyond small talk and learning more and sharing moments with them.

I was thinking about the difference between now and when I used to attend these events regularly without missing one single event for 3 years when I walked by the kitchen table and saw this note that Lillian wrote in class today … Made my eyes sweat like crazy ….

Here I am focusing on things that really don’t matter and receiving a timely little reminder to be grateful, grateful, grateful. I am grateful to all who have stood by me as I’ve done some intense soul searching over the past few years … Grateful for life. Grateful for LOVE. Grateful for amazing kids who are two of my greatest teachers. And grateful to the person who gifted me that ticket!
