I often walk into a messy room and sigh. . . Yet I realize that if I don't use my creativity, the room will not look inviting. I want my rooms to be pretty. I want my husband and children to enjoy the quiet and order of home life.
All I have to do is put away a few items. . . Then tuck in chairs. . . I straighten pillows. . . sweep floors, and wash mirrors. Each little task is progress. Just another polish here, and a tidy there, and soon my rooms look lovely.
A messy room can be a challenge. But more often than not, it is a beautiful way for us to enjoy the fruit of our labor. With our own efforts and skills, we can create loveliness.
Once the work is done, I sit with a cup of tea and enjoy a much deserved homemaking break. But the greatest reward of all, is when my family walks into a room, smiles to themselves and does not say anything about it. They are content and at peace, because that is the environment I strive to keep for them.
Everything is right with the world, when Mother's home is pleasant and tidy.
