The cannas all need to be trimmed back. My garden has been sadly ignored the last few months.
It is one of those times in life where every which way I look I see a project, a commitment, something that needs to be DONE that I've neglected.
I will confess to y'all the word that keeps running through my head is defeated. I hate to be dramatic but last Saturday I sat right down on my kitchen floor in defeat and hung my head. I started a scoreboard in my head . . . clean house v. Me, winner is the house. Organized homeschool v. Me the win goes to chaos. My kids were having a rip roaring argument at the time. Raising amazing people v. Me, call me the loser. I just went on and on until I wanted to cry. From my spot, on the floor I looked over and caught a glimpse of the dirt underneath my stove. Here is some life advice, when you feel defeated don't look underneath your stove.
So . . . this is where I give you some deep wisdom on how to get it all done, right??? Except I can't. We all get 24 hours a day. Personally, I have to sleep 8 of those. The other 16 I've to use reverently, responsibly and the best I can. That's all.
This I do know. Defeated and productive don't coexist (at least not well). So, I have to go a little easy on myself. No sense tearing myself down. Like the Bible says, Proverbs 14:1
The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down.
P.S. I did clean under my stove. Talk about some serious Ewwwww. 😱😵😖
