I absolutely agree that our relationships are the most important part of our lives and making them the priority is the key to happiness. But what if you don't have children? (I don't.) I suggest that other relationships, especially with your spouse, can be deeply rewarding.
Amen! Printing this one and displaying where I will see it everyday.
Thank you for posting this! I'll need a bit more encouragement and reminders this week as Hurricane Sandy closes in on our state. Lots of family time indoors with (likely) no power to come! Here's to making the most of it : )
I love this so much. Thank you for the reminder.
Just thought I'd shoot you a quick comment asking a question :) Any Christmas ideas for your big kids???? I loved all your ideas last year and purchased several of them but am now stumped (and on a budget!) My kids are 12, 10, 8, 6 and I have no idea what to give them. I'd love to see a post from you whenever you have a moment! Thanks :)
Love this Sarah!
I think this might be my favorite quote yet. It's so true - things cannot replace people, especially parents. The decision to be a full time mother means that my kids miss out on material things, especially since my husband is in law school and will be for awhile. I love anything that helps me stay centered on what's really important. My kids don't need the latest and greatest toys, they need me. Thanks for posting this (again, they're some of my favorite posts)!
Printing tbis Sarah. Thank you. Just catching up on your blog. I recommend it to all my friends for a nice dose of keeping it simple and real.
