Yes, this is very much true. We have given up on TV. All we ever got from it was distraction anyway... from reality, from our kids, everything. We only watch movies (in DVDs) when we feel like kicking back, usually late at night.

The sad thing is, is that my kids are the ones bothering me, so sad. I never go anywhere, so I never see anyone else. I'm not going to let my kids "bother" me anymore, and cherish every little word, yell, and action. I love them! Thanks, Sherelle for waking me up. Brianna

This is such a good post. Very insightful and perfect for this time of year (Lent). Thanks for reminding us all to stop and listen, not brush off.

FWIW, I don't watch TV anymore because of the obsession with celebrities. PBSkids doesn't count!

So true, Sherelle! Once again you have inspired me to be more grateful. There are so many ways that we can lift others everyday and I really believe that at the end, that is what we will be asked about

Sherelle, thanks for being so insightful and helping us have a better perception of how other's feel. I enjoyed reading your thoughts. Its good to be reminded that the world doesn't revolve around us.

a thought came into my head as i read this... wouldn't it be cool to be able to put together an award event for people in our own lives? i'm envisioning a luncheon with all the moms i know and give them each the recognition they deserve for being on-the-job 24/7. maybe i'll make an 'award' for each, a small album...something...anything, to give them the recognition they they DEFINITELY deserve. i'll have to think about this. thanks for the food for thought!!! :-)

This is really something I needed to think about - thanks for sharing your thoughts. It really helped changed my point of view on a few things I've been thinking about. THANKS!

What a sweet post. You're SO right and it's a great thing for all of us to think about at the beginning of a new week.

You got me thinking about life. How often do we think our lives are too full for new friends, new experiences? I've noticed myself getting this way as a mother. Many days I just try to keep my house together and dinner on the table. I don't feel like I have time for new friends, new experiences. It's horrible and it's in those moments I find myself feeling lonely.

So, I'm making a note to myself to take time for friendships and experiences old and new. Thanks for getting me thinking Sherelle!
