No doubt, relationships are more important than things. SOME things are important because they remind us of relationships. I have a doily my mother-in-law crocheted for me. It's more important to me now that she's gone. I have my parents' quilt that my grandmother made for them for their wedding. That's important to me. (hey siblings - if you're reading this, I wonder if you already knew that I have that ...???) But the older I get the more firmly I know that relationships are more important than anything AND that they take work. There's not a single relationship that is worth anything that doesn't take work. So I know this: It's worth any sacrifice, even sacrifice of my ego, to make relationships solid and positive and lasting. And I'm committed to work harder on them.
