What Matters Most

I was up late {again} last night. While I waited for my sweet little babe
to fall asleep.
While I waited, I watched a couple videos that always give me a lift.
You see...life has a way of handing out some tough stuff and I need a way to deal with the not so pleasant aspects of life.
So, this is what I did.
I held my baby all day yesterday, giving him lots of smooches.
I listened to some good tunes and sang along. {The little one liked that too.}
I watched this...
it is absolutely an instant pick-me-up & I try to watch it frequently. It brings me peace and I should get up every day and watch it.
Then I found this one...
which spoke words that were exactly what I needed to hear.
I am really good at being thoughtful {read on...I am not being as nice to myself as you may think}. My problem is the follow through.
I always think, 'I should write a note to so-and-so, just because.' Or 'I should make a treat and take it to so-and-so, just because.'
Things like that, only I never do them.
So I am not going to demand perfection {for it comes not to us in this life, but in the next one} of myself, but I am going to demand improvement.
At this very special time in my life, I know exactly what is important...

& I hope I never forget.
