When I read THIS ENTRY about being content with our homes for seasons so that we can focus on other things, like raising children, I was challenged. She talks about your home being "good enough." What if you had to stop changing it and DIY-ing, would you be content with the way it is? The point is to realize that there are things (people) more important than how your home looks, and that at times, you just have to say "It's Good Enough!"I've been living in the "good enough" stage for a few months, but confession: it's starting to bug me and I'm getting the itch to finish our family room. I struggle a bit with the quote above, can I be content but want to make things better at the same time? Can I be content with my home and want to make improvements also? I think the answer is yes, but maybe it is more about your attitude towards your home and how much it consumes you.
Another reason it has to be "good enough" sometimes is because of the kid-factor. That just throws all plans of perfection out the window.
And what do you think of this saying?
Mmmm hmmm. Us Momma's like this one!
Anyway, just some good reminders for myself. Hoping that you are feeling content with your blessed abode this week!
