What's Important to YOU?

I have heard it said, more times than I'd like in recent weeks that WE MAKE TIME FOR WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO US.
Here is my list as of late, in order
  1. Praying
  2. My husband and kids
  3. Work
  4. Sleep which includes naps in the sun ;-)
  5. Church and friends
I am sad to say Church and friends has not been at the top of my list lately. In fact I recently sent a card to a good friend of mine out of state because I felt it was the only way I could make time to let her know I was thinking about her. I love her and when she called to thank me for the card we spent an hour on the phone. It was so amazing to re-connect. Before we hung up she even said next time just call. I know she is right, I just feel like no one has time for that anymore so instead of bothering people I just don't. It's kind of crazy for me to be this way because I try hard to live by the words TREAT OTHERS AS YOU WOULD WANT TO BE TREATED. In fact it's one of our family motto's. I just get so tired of reaching out to others and no one reaching back. Does anyone else feel like this? What kinds of things are important to you?

Actually, it's pretty amazing that you take the time to send cards. I think that takes more effort than calling - so good for you!
I'm so glad we got to see you the other night! It was fun to spend a little time together & catch up a bit.
We love you Rachel (Rachet)
