Today my house is kind of a mess … the busy-ness of the last few days has set me back in keeping up with my home-school stuff – mainly the paperwork. I really need to vacuum; I can’t remember the last time I did that?!?! And the cat litter boxes – bla – I love my kitties but after they are gone, NO MORE …
Stacks cover my dining room table – papers, books, a hair clip, someone’s hoodie is hung over one of the chairs. I still don’t know what to cook for dinner tonight – or if we’ll even have dinner tonight since the kids have ballgames.
BUT I am thankful:
I have a family who makes these messes. I have a husband who can’t really help me right now, but he waits patiently for me as I type this so that I can go help him with his morning routine that he still can’t do by himself due to the broken leg. I have a little fuzzy cat sitting on my lap, nuzzling under my typing arms so I will remember to pet her.
Slowly today I’ll get to all that I need to do – or not. And that’s ok too. My family doesn’t mind – it’s ME who is gets all crazy when I start to feel like my house is chaotic. They just continue to do what they do – schoolwork, play, laugh, watch TV … and when I start hollering, they come to help me! 🙂
I’ve always wanted just this: to be a Hausfrau, to have a few children, to be happily married to a man who is godly and so good to me. My wish is granted. It isn’t always neatly packaged – but it contains MUCH MUCH LOVE.
This is what I am thankful for today – how about you!? Join me for 30 Days of Thanks in November … Mr. Linky should be working better today (I hope!), if you want to join me.
