Think About It Thursday - None of us Have it all Together!

Lest you think from the pretty pictures and words on my blog that I have it all together, I am posting pics of my house today. This week I am extra busy with parent teacher conferences and a Science Fair at my school on Friday.  My house is a bit of a disaster.  Don't believe me... take a peek for yourself...

It drives me crazy!  But this is how things go sometimes.  And you know what?  None of us have all together.  It is all a facade.  I love my house nice, neat, and orderly - in my fantasy life.  The fact of the matter is, I have a husband, three kids, a dog, a cat, a job, and other things going on.  Some weeks my house is in better shape than others; this week with so much going on, the house got put to the bottom of the list.  

I hope you take heart to know that you are not alone.  None of us have it all together.  I don't care how pretty other people's lives look to you, as the saying goes "the grass is always greener".  And, we don't live in a magazine shoot.  Go a little easier on yourself, take things one day at a time, and if you fall, get back up and try again.

I am now off to school.  The house and mess will still be here when I get home.  And, I will tackle it over the next few days.  My family and the people in my life know I love them and that is what is most important.   I am giving myself grace ... hope you give grace to yourself as well!

Praying you have many blessings and much joy!
