Despite all my talk about homemaking, I’m having trouble keeping the house an orderly and pleasant place to be, with summer beckoning us to go in all different directions at once.So right now, we’re going out as much as possible. When the dirty dishes are stacked overwhelmingly high, or I can’t walk through the living room without stepping on some random toy or kitchen utensil, or those piles of laundry that need folding just won’t go away, we head out — to the park, the pool, the lake, the library. Or just into our own yard. Anywhere that keeps me from having to think about the mess for a little while. I thought once summer rolled around I’d finally get organized and keep things tidy. But now that we have another little one toddling around, dragging things from place to place, maybe I have to face the reality that “tidy” just isn’t going to happen for another year or so!
All too often I find myself inhabiting the lands of Someday and Might-Have-Been. Right Now is an exercise I try to practice here every Tuesday, an attempt to let go of anything that is holding me back from paying attention to the beauty and wonder in the life I’m living right now.
