The other week, I started What Matters Monday – a new series of blog posts here at Heidi’s Head. I skipped posting last Monday, since it was a holiday; but I wanted to dive back in today.
Over the past two weeks I have learned . . .
It doesn’t matter what denomination is listed on the sign outside your church.
What matters is the people inside. The people who make up the church. Your church family. We’ve been blessed to be a part of a wonderful church family. Last week, we made a commitment to this body of believers – and we were accepted into the membership/family there.
It doesn’t matter if I have one less tooth in my mouth than I did two weeks ago.
What matters is that I am no longer living in the pain that I had been for the past 4 months! Wow! Remember the “how do you spell relief” commercials? That’s sort of how I have felt these past few days since having my tooth extracted. It’s amazing the pain we learn to live and deal with on a daily basis!
It doesn’t matter that Ashley isn’t 100% sure what is happening with her job.
What matters is that she had the day off on Friday and was able to join us for a Field Trip to Wildwood Park in Harrisburg. It was a perfect day!
And here are a few more things that matter to me:
It matters that . . . my family was able to take a day and head to an area festival last Saturday. Sometimes you just need to get out of the house and enjoy each other’s company.
It matters that . . . I’ve been able to reconnect with a very dear friend from high school. I have so enjoyed rekindling our friendship and building a new one! Ashley and I had a great time on Saturday, taking my friend Suzanne to Lancaster for the day. She’ll be joining us at Walt Disney World next year for Ashley’s 21st birthday trip, and we can’t wait!
It matters that . . . Gracie has successfully completed her first year of Confirmation class at church and has started her 2nd (and final) year. I’ve seen exciting changes in her as a result!
Are you focusing on the things that matter?
I’d love to hear about them!
