I remember writing one of my very first book reports on the First Lady of the United States, Barbara Bush.
Tonight we celebrate this beautiful example of a life well lived and honored by so many. I came across the quote below and it hit me especially hard on this particular #trashouttuesday –
Well said, Barbara. Well said.
In light of a “discussion” I had with my husband today in our garage about why we need to keep 3 strollers…I would add this piece of wisdom –
“At the end of your life, you won’t care about your stuff!” – Starr Haigler
So why is it so hard to let go of the stuff we don’t need???
The struggle is real and it’s an ugly reality in our home currently. With our upcoming move, we’re faced with the fact that we still have TOO MUCH STUFF.
I don’t have answers for you, oh how I wish I did. I can simply share my own personal struggles in life and tell you how you’re never alone.
There’s been an afternoon full of regret in my mind about our argument over 3 strollers in the garage and how something has to give. It’s funny how God will stop us to consider what really matters, right?
Here’s what really matters most – the people we love.
Instead of stressing about our stuff, I stopped to swing with her in the tree. We will both remember these moments for a lifetime.
Here’s the thing – I don’t want to pass along a garage full of stuff she’ll have to eventually get rid of. Instead, I want to pass along a legacy worth living and keeping alive that she’ll hopefully continue with her own children one day.
