Dirty Dishes, Wet Hair, Abba and 2 Corinthians

Tonight, I am writing in my nightgown while listening to Abba. “Dancing Queen…..”

I am actually singing with Abba. I am sorry you had to miss that.

My hair is wet because I just walked the dog in the rain, and I could not find the umbrella.

But the dog will still probably get me up at 3am because he refuses to poop when it’s raining.

I don’t blame him. I would not want to poop in the rain either.

There are still dirty dishes in my sink from Saturday and Sunday.

I “made” a frozen pizza for dinner.

And except for opening the oven to insert the pizza, I have not completed one household task today.

But do you know what?

I don’t feel guilty.

There was a time when I would have felt incredibly guilty and depressed that I can’t do it all.

Work a 8-10 hour day, workout, help take care of our house, dog and give my husband the attention he deserves, and be a stepmom every weekend from 6pm on Friday to 6pm on Sunday.

But I can’t expect myself to be perfect.

And my husband does not expect me to be perfect.

And more importantly God does not expect me to be perfect.

I am only human.

And there are some days you just have to choose.

Choose the most important things and just know the dishes will be there tomorrow.

Tomorrow is a new day.

And my husband would rather spend the evening watching a Duck Dynasty marathon with me than have a clean kitchen.

I have a some art work hanging in my kitchen that is a great reminder when the dishes seem to be overwhelming.

“And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” 2 Cor 12:9

Speaking of Duck Dynasty, Joe just said (in his best southern drawl), “Ms. Rene’, it’s time for bed.”
