i hope everyone had a great week and is going to have a wonderful weekend. I am so excited for Egg Day tomorrow. I will be taking a ton of pictures to share with you all. Today I want to share one of the biggest blessings in my life.
I love her and her crew! While I have always known that a clean house is not just what I want but what I need as well, I didn’t quite know how to make that happen. It was not something I learned as a small child and it did not come naturally to me as it does for some folks. I also want to spend my time with the people I love, not keeping house. Many years ago I found Flylady. I can honestly say she has changed my life. I am completely in awe of this woman and how she is able to pour so much love on so many while teaching us how to take care of ourselves. Did I mention she dose this fro free? Amazing.
From her I have learned; to do a laundry every day. To swish and swipe my bathroom everyday. To start dinner by setting nice table and then running a sink full of hot soapy water. Dirty dishes go in as I cook and I clean as I cook and when I’m done cooking my kitchen is clean. I cook at least 3 times a day so that was rather profound. I reaffirmed that holidays are about doing not about buying. That simple is really wonderful, less is more and it is ok to decluttered.
In fact decluttering has been a big key for me. I had/ have so much stuff that is just stuff. It is not stuff I love,I don’t use it, it doesn’t have meaning to me and it doesn’t really fit my life but it was living here in my house taking up space. My house is 800sq feet so its not like we have room for a lot for things. Now don’t get me wrong. My house is not clean all the time and everything is peaceful and happy every day. House work is still work and I work on it every day. I have learned that if I do a little everyday it works.
In all honestly I can never express just how much this woman has provided for me a perfect stranger.bags, toiletries were in their home. I can tell you when my father called to say mom was being airlifted to a hospital, I was able to get a bag packed in just a few minuets. Cloths were clean and put away and I can tell you our Yule/Christmas/New years was very calm and that all the plans were done by thanksgiving. We were able to be with family and just enjoy. I can tell you that I get to spend my weekends with my family and my days playing with my daughter ( and educating her) instead of scrubbing the house. I can tell you Flylday brought our house a sense of peace. For this blessings she has given us I am truly thankful and feel blessed.
