Important Things in Life

For the past couple of weeks I have been following a story on twitter.  The story of a little girl, 2 year old Layla Grace, who has stage 4 cancer called Neuroblastoma.  The story rips my heart out because my Macey is the same age as Layla.  To read the family's struggle with this horrible situation is to put myself into their shoes and it makes me want to crumble.  I imagine what it would be like to be going through this with them.  My heart breaks for them and little Layla. I'm praying continually for them. With this on my heart and mind it's been hard to see the importance of my work life.  All I want to do is spend time with Mary and Macey.  I'm finding it hard to concentrate on "work" and other things.  We have a new little one on the way, who will be here in August and I can't help but think that these girls and this new little one (we don't know the sex of the new baby yet) are the most important things in my life.

So, I have decided that I need to make MORE time for them.  I need to make sure that I'm doing my best at work, because that's what God calls me to do, but to also give my BEST and ALL of me at home.  I'm so blessed and extremely thankful for my life.

God, help me to be who you've asked me to be. Help me to spend my efforts on what matters.  You've placed me here, right now, to do what I am doing.  Help me to do it the best I can, and help me to serve the way you would want me to.  To serve Mary and Macey and all the people at work.  You're the best, God!  No circumstance will change that!
