Admittedly, I am my mother's daughter but some of the zeal has passed and I am not as staunch as I once was, nor do I have the energy for all of that activity. Windows get done, when I get to them and I guarantee that it will rain the day after I finish. I have gone to bed with some dishes from the evening in the sink because the dishwasher is still going but the bed is always made, fresh towels each day, the bed is changed weekly and more of all those mundane tasks. My life does not gain satisfaction from doing all of that but I like the looks of it when it is done. I hate clutter and it is difficult to look at what hoarders deal with. There were homes that I did nursing in that I wouldn't even put my nursing bag down and others you could eat off the floor.
So what is this all about? It is where you are and what is important and what are your needs today. It may change through your life but staying true to what you believe and remembering where you came from will keep you focused and grounded. We weren't rich and we weren't poor but we had a respect for hard work, and the value of a dollar and that your word is the best thing you can give someone and your time. So having said all that, I hope you make it day great.S
