-by Mary May Larmoyeux – As we make plans for 2017, 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 on her Facebook page, “and then he crawled up in my lap and this happened.”
“Laundry can wait. They aren’t this little for long.”
Theresa’s words are a great reminder of what really matters, especially at this time of year.
Doing laundry, checking Facebook, and making to-do lists can all wait … for what’s priceless.
May we never forget what matters most!
