Good Enough

Don’t let perfect get in the way…

of good,

or better,

or even just good enough.

And so, taking this advice, I am posting today

…an imperfect post written

with a baby boy playing at my feet

and in full view of my imperfect kitchen

while sitting in my messy dining room

…and despite the imperfection I am choosing to be grateful for the dinner meal already cooking in the oven – hours before it needs to be ready.  And I am grateful for the aromas of said food starting to drift through our home.

I am grateful for the abundant signs of life cluttering our dining room…

a jigsaw puzzle in process on the table,

a half-built ukelele awaiting completion.

laundry (some clean, even more dirty)

groceries waiting to be put up,

baby toys,

a make-shift green-house

and sprouting seeds

One day the kitchen will be re-modeled.

One day the dishes will all be caught up.

One day there will not be so many signs of living cluttering our living space.

But it will never be perfect.

I am content with today’s imperfections…

with an imperfect home filled with family and life and living.

It is all good…even the parts that are good enough.

Peace…
