I am blessed….
Two of my grandchildren live within 2 miles of me. I can’t tell you how much seeing these little faces light up my life.
Yet there are times when I have plans and then the pause button gets pushed because I need to take care of a sick kid.
Do I have plans? Sure I do! Are any of those plans more important than these guys?
After having taken care of my parents for years I am sort of use to putting my life on hold. When I least expected it I would often have to spend the day with my parents in the emergency room. At the time I would be annoyed. Another day that the laundry wasn’t getting done…or my haircut. Now that mom and dad are both gone I wouldn’t trade those memories I have with them for anything.
So when my grandkids are sick I will be there….when my neighbor stops by I will pause my life…when my kid asks me out to lunch I will go…even if I have already ate because I know now that we all need a pause button on our life or we can get caught up in the silliest things.
Thank you God for the pauses in life
