This post is more for myself than y'all.
But, if somebody reads this and maybe can glean some little tidbit from it,
then that's great, too!!!

The realization that I came to when I wrote the post "Letting Go" at the end of March has really stuck with me!!!   
In the last few months I've come to realize that I truly need to focus on the people in my life who matter.  
My Mom's health and the cancer one of my best friends is going through has really made me stop and think about all the times I've allowed what others think of me, or how they treat me, to be way too important.  
Self-pity can really be the pits and cause me to be a.....
Debbie Downer!!!

I'm not saying that everybody shouldn't matter.....
but I need to prioritize.
God should ALWAYS be first.....
although, I often take HIM for granted the most.

My Mom has said some of the sweetest things to me the last few weeks.
I believe she realizes that her heart is starting to wear out.
No matter how I was brought up....
no matter what things were said and done....
all of those memories just seem to fade into the distance at the thought of losing the one person who gave me life.

Breathing in Jesus,



  1. What a great post Debbie! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  2. What a heartfelt post, Debbie. Thank you for your honesty and how the Lord has used these two precious ladies in your life to bring you to a point that you understand who is important. We all need to set priorities. I continue to pray for your mom.
