Okay, So I am not naturally gifted in being a housewife. When we were first married, the dishes would practically sit on the counter ( or counters as the week went on!) until the weekend when David would finally help me wash them. ( I'm not quite that bad anymore!) I could give you stories that would make you cringe, but then you would probably never want to hang out with me anymore so I will refrain. I have good intentions though. I'm the kind of wife who gets really excited and tries to make bread, bagels, English muffins and a pie all in the same day, even though we couldn't eat all of it in a month, but then fails to have a lunch ready for her husband in the morning!
I've just been realizing though, how great a desire I have to raise my daughters to be the best wives I can equip them to be. But unfortunately, that means they have to learn from me!
While I am much better than my former days, I still am not disciplined enough to have a house that I feel truly confidant about. People can come over, I just pray that they don't look in THAT room! We are getting ready to start a new schedule for this school year. Please pray for us that we are successful, as once again, I am one to get all fired up about a thing like this, only to let it slide away two weeks later. As my incredibly gracious husband quotes " If you take care of the little things, the big things take care of themselves!".
