When I was single and younger if you would have told me that I would be happy and content to stay at home all day and do housework I would have told you that you were crazy! I always wanted to be going somewhere or doing something exciting. Now that I am a married woman of almost 5 years and a mom some of my most enjoyable times are in my home.
This week I have been catching up on some housework that got neglected this past weekend. I did laundry, vacuumed and cleaned my kitchen.
As I was doing these chores I had the thought that I was very happy to be doing it all. I am very blessed to be able to stay at home with Bo. I am grateful I have a house to clean and take care of. I was feeling all warm and fuzzy inside and I felt a lot of love. Love for Tracy, love for Bo, love for Brooke(my stepdaughter) and love for myself. I was truly happy to be cleaning my house. Bo was watching a movie while I was cleaning and he would come find me and I would give him a hug and then he would be on his way. It was a very peaceful feeling I had and I loved it.
Now this doesn't happen all the time and I am NOT I repeat NOT a neat freak or very tidy. I have been known to be messy to a point then it drives me crazy and I have to clean it up. But every so often I do have these moments when I love to clean my house.
Have a happy Wednesday everyone!
