Life…What is Important?

This past weekend was emotional. Sunday we heard about three guys who died in an avalanche backcountry skiing at Stevens Pass. My husband and his friends ski back there all the time. As it turns out, my husband went to school with two of the skiers who died. Another one of our good friends, Adam, was there with the skiers when the avalanche hit and he tried to resuscitate one of the men who died. Adam is an awesome man.

It’s always sad when someone dies, but knowing how young these guys were, that they left loved ones behind, and that my husband’s friend was a father of an eight and a ten year old, really hit home hard. You just never know where life will take you so love the ones your with right now.

I saw the below list last week. I think it’s important. More

Bursting With Love by Liz Nord

Being a parent is life altering and challenging at times; but at the end of the day I know one thing for sure: I love my girls more than anything in the world! I feel so fortunate to have them in my life. I want to be the best mom that I can be every day and sometimes that means loving myself a little more.

There were times when the girls were infants when I felt isolated and stuck at home. I should have made more effort to do things for myself, but I felt guilty. I felt that if I took time out for me, I was being selfish. I’m seeing more now that’s not true. A sitter now and then wouldn’t have been so bad. In fact, it probably would have been really good for everyone.

At times, (like our house flooding) I feel overwhelmed by my domestic duties; I don’t feel like cleaning, cooking, organizing, refereeing, carpooling, and doing laundry non-stop. Sometimes I’m tired or I just need a break—Then I think… I’m really lucky! More
