I had a wonderful weekend in Texas helping my friend fairygodmotherdee (Dee) organize her home. Her family is adopting a teenage boy from their church and their spare room contents were spread throughout her house, primarily in her bedroom.
She was desperate, but the good thing is, she was not in denial and asked for help. Asking for help and doing what it takes to make the changes is the first step in creating the life you imagine in your home and in all aspects of life.
Now, Dee has a professional job, her hubby too, and two teenage children to keep up with. To say her plate is full is an understatement. So, having a haven to come home to, a place where the stresses of the day melt away is very important. She has made the first step in making her home a place that when people walk in to it they say, “boy, it is good to be here”. With God’s unconditional love and promised strength, (and a little nudge, well big push from The Park Wife) she is going to be able to manage her home more efficiently.
Wow, I am not sure she realized what all she had in there. The grocery store clerks are going to be calling in a week or so to make sure she is alright because she does not need to go there for a while. Stock in Brookshire’s will be plummeting, so you better sell now.
Now, in actuality, I missed my boys. When I talked to Little Buckaroo on Saturday, remember he is 5, he said “mom, everything I see around here reminds me of you” and all the “I miss you so much” pulled those heart strings. I only cried once, probably because I was knee deep helping price Yard Sale items and did not have much time to think about what was happening back at the Park.
O.K. all you that know me know, that is an exaggeration, I thought about my guys all the time.
So, get on my calendar early, The Park Wife Organizer is open for business.
Happy President’s Day,
