what a mess. I had a spazz attack and I let my children know that they had a lot of work to do when they got home. (Hmmm, I don't think they were the creators of all these piles around me but they did have their share.) It really became uncomfortable in the house. I had to just sit on the floor and have a little talk with my Father. He pretty much sat me down and said Dori....breathe.......Dori Be still! BE STILL! Ok, ok I hear you Lord! I asked for some forgiveness and He showed me some. I jumped up and decided it was time to have some fun! It was time for snow and sparkle! I got out the shaving cream and added a little glitter and WAL LA Snow and Sparkle! We made a bigger mess and had fun doing it. The kids had such fun playing and reminding me once again that these little (or big) piles of messes will only be with me for so long so don't sweat the small stuff.

What was in those Wheaties this morning?
Ugh, I woke up feeling such a sense of accomplishment with my new garland from The Nester challenge yesterday. My special part of the front entrance-way that says "Hey look at the effort I put into Christmas". When WHAM BAM! All heck broke out. My lovely, peaceful spot was being sabotaged by my mind. I started noticing all the places in my house that looked horrible! Ok one thing I want to make sure when writing this blog is that I'm REAL! Sometimes this is a little hard for me because I would like for everyone to see my little spot in the world as perfect. (Thank you God for showing me that I'm not.) Anyhoo, My imperfection started to become neon in my view. YIKES
