Yesterday was a happy day for me. Everything just seemed to come together beautifully.
My husband has been working extremely long hours and the overtime will definitely come in handy. I am grateful for the added income.
He got off on time yesterday. My oldest daughter didn’t have to work. My son was home. We all just hung out together. My daughter who is at school even called to say she would be coming home on Sunday.
Everyone was outside working on a project that I’ll show you in just a bit, but first…
My son asked me to come out an join them outside. I hesitated and he said “I understand you have a lot to do – don’t worry about it”.
Whoa! How caught up do I get in accomplishing tasks that I miss opportunities like this. I dropped what I was doing and headed outside. The dishes still aren’t done and I’m okay with that.
Here is what happened:
The garden is growing like crazy because of all the rain. We’ve barely kept ahead of the weeds, but we haven’t given up like we did in the past. I’m slowly letting go of my “perfect or not at all” mentality.
What a happy day – I’m still smiling.
