It’s easy to get caught up in the idea that we have to do everything all at once and stay busy busy busy. Schedules and skewed priorities can quickly take the place of what’s really important. October was a stressful month full of editing, deadlines, photographing and not enough hours in each day. Loving what I do, I am still thankful for the stressful months, but I was tired. October was rough, or so I thought. Then November came. Night-long prayers, family phone chains and waiting rooms threw my perspective back into place once again. A reminder that the important things in life are faith and loved ones.
Be a best friend, tell the truth
And overuse “I love you”
Go to work, do your best
Don’t outsmart your common sense
Never let your prayin’ knees get lazy
And love like crazy
~ Lee Brice
As the busyness of the holiday season starts, I hope you remember what’s important. Instead of stressing over meals and finding the right gifts, spend time with loved ones. Gather together and enjoy all the little moments, where coffee is shared as the sun rises and laughter fills the living room. After all it’s the little moments that will get you through the rough ones and make it all worthwhile.
