I Care

I don't care if my house is messy.
I care that it is lived in.

I don't care if every meal is healthy and balanced.
I care that we eat it together.

I don't care if my laundry is folded and put away.
I care that we can afford to have clean, decent clothes to wear.

I don't care that my house is cluttered.
I care that we have treasures.

I don't care that we don't live in "THE" neighborhood.
I care that my neighbors smile and wave and know our names.

I don't care if I have a fancy car to drive.
I care that we can afford the note.

I don't care that I've made mistakes.
I care that I've learned from them.

I don't care if my dreams don't come true.
I care that my kidss dreams do.

I don't care that my kids might be spoiled.
I care that they are loved.

I don't care about our differences.
I care about how we are the same.

I don't care what people think of me.
I care about what I think of myself.

I don't care about the state of my life.
I care about the state of my soul.

I don't care that the mountain is steep.
I care that the valley is wide.

I don't care if it storms tomorrow.
I care that God promises sunshine after the rain.

I don't care that life is short.
I care that I have a promise of life everlasting.

**I got this from Jen over at Momma Made it Look Easy. Thanks, Jen!!

I don't care if my dreams don't come true.
I care that my kids dreams do.

That is the truest one for me.
