Fixing fences

Ann at His Grace to Me encouraged me to "fix the fences, the pony is coming!" I love that! So what fences need mending around here? Whoa...looks like quite a few.

When struggles come it is often hard to do the ordinary. You know, the daily things that make life, well, so, cooking, schooling. Before I knew it, I found myself wandering aimlessly, accomplishing nothing. Ann's encouragement made me look at those daily "fences". My first thought was, "I don't FEEL like cleaning that bathroom." Well duh! Who "feels" like cleaning a bathroom??? Cooking? Why can't my family eat cereal for every meal? It's fiber for goodness sake!

I had to get up off my fanny and just do it, regardless of how I feel. Yep, fake it 'til you make it. So the bathroom's clean (at least one of the four) and I'm off to fix something other than cold cereal. Won't my family be surprised!


  1. I know what you mean! Our finances are tight, and I mentioned to my husband the idea of my working from home. He's less than thrilled. He's afraid I can't do it all. Today as I looked around the house, I could understand his skepticism. If the house isn't clean now; why should he expect I'd have any more success when I have a job? Yep, there are some fences around here that need to be fixed as well.

    I hope you enjoyed a lovely dinner! Hang in there. Keep doing the next thing. I'm praying for you!

  2. Ang,
