Keeping in mind what’s important

FamilyHey, remember me.

It’s been awhile since something was posted here. But today is a new chance to start over.

I’m still here. And there are still things that need to be said.

In the past few days, I’ve been thinking about recent disappointment. I won’t bore you with the details. Let’s just say it was nothing as series as a fatal illness. But as I thought about it, what’s really important overshadowed the disappointment. The people in this photo are important. Seeing them so happy is important  — look at those smiles.

The things that disappointed me are not what’s important.

All of that’s important.

The things that have kept me up the past few nights? Not so much. In fact, not at all.

Today is a new day filled with new opportunities. It just took me a few days to remember that.
