Wisdom of the Ages 354

It was school holiday time and the children were nagging their mother to take them on a picnic by the river but she said that she couldn’t, she didn’t have time as she had a lot of ironing to do. Her own mother was staying with her and said “When your children are grown up they won’t remember if they had ironed pyjamas, but they will remember you taking them on a picnic to the river.”

How often do we miss the important opportunities in life by allowing ourselves be swamped by the unimportant.
