A Haiku - Priorities

First things first, but first decide which get the first priority.


A Haiku - Priorities

Prioritize them:

Eternal Consequences?

Promises to keep?

Deadlines coming up?

There is only so much time.

What must I complete?

Save some time for fun.

Don't forget about your health!

Eat well, sleep, cut stress.

When you've made your list,

(the do-ables for today)

Concentrate, and scratch!

Scratching off completed priorities is its own reward!

In this life, we really must prioritize everything. Back in the old days, mom could stay at home and take care of the kids and the house. Not so any more, partners have to work to keep up with the bills.

aviannovice - My youngest daughter and her husband have five children, all finally in school full-time this year, but until now she stayed home. Now she works nights with weekends off. In the meantime her husband worked two jobs. With raising five children, it took and takes that kind of dedication. Now college educations are not that far off. Grandparents can provide a break once in a while, and those breaks are important. Their children pitching in to help with cleaning, laundry, lawns, trash, setting and clearing the table, etc., are essential in a big family....but it works, and it makes for a tight knit family that cares about each other.

The same can be said for our four other children and 12 other grandchildren.
