    I have a wonderful friend on facebook and even though we have never met because I live in Canada and she lives in England, she has helped me through the messes lately.

    Today she sent me a lightbulb moment that I wanted to share with you all:

    Don't make someone a priority when they make you an option.

    I love this....she knows all about everything with difficult child and her ick and the baby to be....certainly worth writing out and taping on my mirror:)

    I haven't heard this one before.
    IT's good and it's a keeper.
    (Of course I think we should lend a helping hand when we are able to those in need)
    However...I fully get the point of this statement and I think its something we all need to hear.
    I also like "Charity begins at home," because sometimes I think we give to others and forget our own families.
    I think that it all boils down to being "mindful" of what is going on around us.
    Thank you very much for this.

    Love it. I have to say, this is also great advice to those of us out in the dating world ;-)
