I was washing poop off of cloth diapers today. My one year old toddling at my feet back and forth. I was thinking about those families who lost their first graders at Sandy Hook.
"It doesn't matter now."
Listening to my children when they talk to me matters.
The time I spend playing with them matters.
The time, thought, and love I put into nourishing them matters.
Going through the day without grumbling matters.
Loving them no matter what they do, matters.
Living without fear matters.
Pursuing your dreams matters.
Eating meals together matters.
Using your time and resources to help the poor and needy matters.
Being thankful matters.
Putting your family above work matters.
Sharing your faith with them matters.
Turning the TV or computer off to spend time together matters.
Not ever taking tomorrow for granted matters.
What matters to you?
