On My Mind Monday

Last night was the second Monday of the month. I have three choices on that day; go to a biomed lecture, meet with the homeschooling ladies or stay home. All three are valid on any given day but last night relationships won. I have been thinking about that all day and especially when a friend asked me today why i didn't go to the biomed conference given my allergy situation. (You know who you are...hope you don't mind me writing about it.) At first I felt guilty but the funny thing is, it is the first time in a long time that I chose to build relationships versus learn something new. It felt good and it was the right thing. There will always be more to learn, another option, a health choice to be made. The relationships in our lives may not always be there. There were two new homeschoolers there last night and it was my pleasure to encourage them as I have been encouraged over the years. I don't think you always choose 'relationship building' but last night did more for my health than any amount of knowledge I could have gained at the lecture. Just On My Mind Monday...

I concur. Sooooooooo wish I could have been there. Relationship building and fellowship is what builds me up :)
Miss you!

That is so true! I really love building relationships and good ones take time to nurture! The road less traveled is often simply hanging out with future friends.

I spent some time the weekend prior to the presentation reading about LDA immunotherapy. I wanted to know more, needed to know more, wanted to be able to ask questions. NOT going might have meant not looking at it or considering it for a long, long time, when it could be something that could really make a difference. Sounds like there are many people who have seen dramatic improvements. As I was reading about it prior to the presentation, I kept thinking that Amy was probably getting excited as she was reading about it, looking forward to being able to ask the doctor questions about the immunotherapy.

I'm the person who was not named in the blog post. I did not know that Amy had two events on the same night. I was able to shift a relationship opportunity to a different night, and do both. ;)
