Well, this week has been a little more hectic than usual, because my normally incredibly healthy 10 year old got a stomach virus and was home from school for 3 days. No blogging, very little pottery AND I stayed home from a peace planning meeting at the UN! I was able to conference in, but hey. I realized, without a doubt or heitation, my priority is my son and my family. No matter how "important" all my extra-curricular activity seems, my boy, my husband, my home and my community are my top priority. Only when everyone is healthy can I leave town for anything.
I take a great deal of comfort in this decision, because it shows me that there are some very clear choices in life. Relationships are at the top of the list and especially our kids. They are the future and their well being is priority one. A little different than how I grew up, but hey, nobody's perfect and better late than never...
Pictures of new work next week, when I glaze and load the kiln!
ps- The New York Times called yesterday....I'll keep you posted ;-)
