Note: I published one year ago on this date. It is still important to me. How about you?I have had this on my mind for a few days. I think it must be because the last few weeks have been very hard on all of us. We are trying to find the ground again and begin living our life without that dark cloud of mistrust and hurt feelings hanging over our heads. What is important in my world...really, what is it given that I have control over almost nothing?
The other day I was feeling very discouraged over a game of golf when one of the women I was playing with told me her grandson had committed suicide last week. What is important on a day like that?
My beautiful great-granddaughter smiled for the camera the other day and I loved her so. What is important on a day like that?
A friend dropped by with a problem here in the park and began to talk about his children and their spouses. The problem faded. What is important on a day like that?
|Important: Our Earth
|Important: Our young son and his beautiful
So, today the sun is shining. We shopped for vegetables and I made a pot of soup. Soon I will have a glass of wine and begin reading a book I ordered for my kindle on my iPad. I ordered a gift for a grandchild for Xmas and checked on another that is to be delivered later this week. I will order more this afternoon.
On this day, what is important to me is that pot of soup, the people I love and, above all, all of you. Outside of that I will do what I can to keep my family safe and loved, our earth clean and do my duty for my country. What else is there?

What do you think is important?
