-by Mary May Larmoyeux – As we make plans for 2018, may each of us consider what really matters. That’s what my friend Theresa did when she was watching a grandchild.
“The plan was to fold laundry while he played,” Theresa said in her Facebook post, “and then he crawled up in my lap and this happened.”
The picture of a sleeping baby in her arms told the rest of the story.
“Laundry can wait,” she said. “They aren’t this little for long.”
Theresa’s words and precious picture are great reminders to consider what really matters. Tomorrow is not promised to any of us. But we do have the moments that we experience each day.
May you and I make the most of them in 2018!
