What’s important

whats-importantSo my kids have this thing about leaving the lid off the toothpaste. Whenever I go in the bathroom we share, I see the lid missing. I get mad. I raise my voice.

Heather, being the balancing agent she is in my life, reminded me that I was making a big deal out of something small. I agreed.

How important is it if the toothpaste dries out? Not very. Is it worth paying three times more for toothpaste that has a magic lidless dispenser? No. Should I fight my kids over something so small? No.

Takeaway: Focus on what’s important today. (Reminder to self.)
