I was about to wash dishes (a lot of them-it's been a while...) and thought I'd make the chore a little more fun by listening to something from oneplace.com. I get over there, click on Family Life Today and find this article about hospitality, messy houses and friendship.
You know, for those of you who struggle with a slightly lived in look...or the perfectionism that makes the messy days bad days.
I've been thinking about perfectionism a lot in the last year or so and truly believe it is bondage (although I've worn the perfectionist badge with pride in the past--ahhh, that's probably why God's given me a gaggle of children--I do believe it's impossible to be a sane perfectionist mommy of many!).
Oh, and just so you know, a determined toddler is fully capable of opening a watermelon. Did you know a watermelon will split in half with only a 3.5 foot fall from the kitchen counter? So, I'll be washing dishes and mopping the floor!
