encouragement.

So today at nearly noon, I finally managed to get dressed. I came out of the bedroom in a ratty t-shirt and jeans, no makeup and, hmm…can’t remember if I’d combed my hair at that point yet. Hubby was stoking the fire- it’s chilly around these parts today– but he got up to give me a smooch and an admiring look anyway.

“Hey, look,” I said, “it only took me till noon to get dressed!” Mentally I was beating myself up for having such a lazy morning.

“So what?” he said, shrugging. “You’ve been doing lots of other stuff this morning.”

And you know what? He was right. Before breakfast I made great strides on my writing project– the query letter is 2/3 done, I think. And by noon I had already done math, English, science, reading, and handwriting with my younger kids.

Yeah. I got a lot done this morning. Regardless of what I was wearing.

Bless me husband for seeing that and reminding me.
