But in it all I have four girls that are happy.
The older three are playing house and the littlest one is trying my bra on for size. (It looks more like a football players shoulderpads. I'll have to explain later what it is for.) The sound of their little voices are truly a wonder. I love it. Although I wish I had the magic answer with how to have both. To have a perfectly clean house and happy contented children.
I have heard so many times from so many different seasoned moms. "You'll never remember the clean/dirty house, you'll only remember the treasured times with your kids." I totally 100% believe that is true. Then how do I keep my mind in check. I wan't to be a good steward of the home that God has given me and also the amazing childen that he has entrusted me with. Where is the balance?
As I am sitting here I am being challenged. Being a good steward of our time. There it is. I remember saying to another mom at a shower a while ago. That I think we all have more time then we give ourselves credit for having. Am I really that busy? When I look at my life is it really that full of stuff that I can't change or do anything about? It's all about choice and where we spend our time. hmmm.... and now... I am signing off. :) I have some kiddies to pay attention to and a house to steward.
