A decluttered house? Meals planned? Clothes washed?
Sometimes it is easy to lose sight of what is really important in our lives. While it is great to be able to meet physical achievements the things that matter most to me are relationships – my friends and family. This has been brought to the forefront of my consciousness recently.
We were able to spend the weekend with Missy in Melbourne which was wonderful. Yesterday I listened while Micky shared some of the challenges she is facing at work. ‘A problem shared is a problem halved’ or so the saying goes.
Finally, tonight the telephone rang as I was about to begin preparing dinner. The sound of the voice of an old friend ensured that dinner was the last thing on my mind for the next 30 minutes while we chatted and the time spent apart just fell away. When I hung up and walked back to the kitchen I realised how refreshed I felt.
I am thankful for the close and meaningful relationships I have with friends and family and cherish them everyday.
