"When you are exasperated by interruptions, try to remember that their very frequency may indicate the value of your life. Only people who are full of help and strength are burdened by other persons' needs. The interruptions which we chafe at are the credentials of our indispensability. The greatest condemnation that anybody could incur - and it is a danger to guard against - is to be so independent, so unhelpful, that nobody ever interrupts us, and we are left comfortably alone."

from The Anglican Digest
My wonderful sister-in-law Mary had this up on her blog a few days ago and I love it!  It certainly puts things into better perspective and helps me to remember the things that matter most!  Thanks for sharing Mary!

I love that quote, thanks for sharing! Perfect timing too because I desperately want to put away the thousands of boxes scattered around my house and all Jilly wants me to do is go up and down the stairs with her. What a sweet little interruption she is!
