Life’s Little Lapses

Yesterday (whoops, it’s already Sat. morning, so I mean, Thur.. confused yet? lol) we got off our rhythm. DH had to go to a nutrition class before PP even woke up. So, no walk until he came home. By then, my get up and go, had already got up and gone! Know what I mean? Sweeping and mopping just wasn’t happening. But hey, I had done it the 3 days previous, so it was a lot cleaner than usual, right? So I comforted my lazy self.

Then yesterday, we had an early morning trip to ER. DH was in tremendous pain.  After a cat scan, they determined it was a pinched cervical nerve. Frightening? Absolutely! Life threatening? No, thank God! Yes, he’s better thanks to Dr. Robin’s  adjustments.  Thanks for asking.

But it started me thinking about life, and what’s important.  The most important things in life are not things, they are people.

Love, hug, kiss and cherish the ones in your life!

slob, humor, heart



Yes, a clean floor is important too, but not at the expense of my relationship to my husband, my daughters, and my grand baby. (Yes, Michelle, I’m gonna mention you too!) Other family falls right in behind there, mom, brother, sister, in-laws, nieces, nephews, aunts, cousins, uncles, ex-husbands, step-mothers.. (Did I forget anybody? Make sure you message me!)

The most important person in my life is Jesus, my Lord and Savior.  If my relationship with Him is in order, it’s much easier to love everyone else properly.

So, God, family, friends, etc. THEN things like clean floorsgourmet meals, and hand smocked dresses.  (affiliate links) Oh, ha ha ha ha! I have to hold my stomach! It hurts from all the belly laughs! Gourmet meals! lol I crack myself up!


Take care of your loved ones, you never know when their next breath will be their last.


  1. So true Melinda! people are the real treasures in life and we should live each day as our last day on earth, being kind and loving. Glad to hear all is well, but situations like this help us with priorities.

    God first, in Him we live and move and have our being!
    Family and friends, beloved let us love one another!
    Neighbours, love thy neighbours and enemies. Why? Because God said so!
    Animals and the earth, because they are His creation and the earth is His footstool, we are to be good stewards!

    As for housework, my mom had a good saying; “Clean enough to be healthy and dirty enough to be happy!”

    Be happy, don’t worry, God is in control!
