important to you. I didn't have plans to proclaim a word, but it got me thinking
was to start on my newest project. I'm beyond anxious to pop the top of
emerald green paint,
brush it on my dumpster dive and transform it into the modern, high gloss
vision of my dreams.
School starts on Wednesday, and I'm so one of those moms that likes a day to get
Fresh fruit and the right groceries for a healthy sack lunch.
That was all happening on Tuesday, too.
after our beautiful day of skiing today my "words for the year" changed.
JUST DO WHAT MATTERS
It doesn't matter that my piece won't get painted, or the school folders are falling apart and
stuffed with old papers, and we're out of white-out, or he'll choose to buy cookies and a
honey bun from the concession stand for lunch, and he'll be throwing his backpack together
at the last minute, and will get to bed later than optimal.
What matters is our 14 year old has only four more years at home with us, I now realize
they will go by in the blink of an eye, and he'll be gone. I'm going to take advantage of and
treasure this time the best I can. He wants to go skiing with us instead of staying home
and hanging out with his friends on the last day of winter vacation,
and we're going....again! :)
All of those things that won't get done...don't really matter.
