The truly important things are simple

I always wondered if my mother was happy with her "simple life" dedicated to being the mother of 8 children. Had she ever wished for something more?

 

Shortly before she passed away my question was answered, as she shared her thoughts & feelings with me about the truly important things in life... like taking the time to lay on the grass and watch the clouds pass by.

 

 

I think my mother would agree with this quote:

 

"Everyone is trying to accomplish something big, not realizing that life is made up of little things."

Beautiful photo! I can totally relate coming from a family of six. Mom started w/alzheimers in 2008; she's 90 now and still in the house we grew up in w/the help of my sister:) The quote helps keep things in perspective.
