Don’t let perfect get in the way…
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,
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.
