It occurred to me that if you look at my blog title, you may think you are coming to a blog where you will find "expert" tips on homemaking. You may assume by the title that I have it together in this area.
The first picture is my "formal" living room. I suppose it could be more formal and less "playroomish".
The second is my entertainment center. Yeah, I know!
The third is my loveseat in our family room. More days than not during the week that's what it looks like. I'm certain you won't be seeing that in Better Homes & Gardens!
These are three particular areas that have the tendency to drive me crazy. Yes, I'm working on getting a better system going, but in the meantime, is it worth having a conniption fit over? The answer is NO! With kids the ages of 19 months, 3 and 5, I am busy. I can spend my day fully devoted to keeping a perfect home, or I can spend time working on things that matter more, like being a loving wife and mother. A mother who without words leads her husband and kids to the Lord.
So, with the Lord's help, that is my goal, to be a gracious homemaker.
