Day 22: Dear Daughters, Simple Priorities


My Laundry Room


Dear Daughters,

At the checkout counter at HEB at 6:45 am this morning, I did a little free reading.

And yes, there was someone in front of me at that time.

This short statement in a magazine I grabbed caught my attention.

                                                   Prioritize the everyday things in your life.

This is huge sweet girls.

Your mother had an epiphany near aisle 8.

What if the everyday, mundane, non-fun, easy to set aside, easy to Scarlet O’Hara- ize things

we  need to do, but easily shove aside, were actual priorities?

Maybe doing those small daily chores of picking up, running a load of clothes, setting something

out to thaw, having a plan for what to wear to work, filling the car up with gas on the same day

each week, running said car through the car wash,  ad infinitum…

What if those things were priorities?

Would that simple daily practice of doing these things consistently create something special in life?

Food for thought.

Love, Mom

it makes me think if the small things were priorities we wouldn't dread and put them they weren't a choice

I just washed my car for the first time in 6 months and it made me feel so happy to see the clean carpet, the nice smell and the super clean windows

if that small thing can make you feel good then why don't I do it???

Food for thought. Yes, making some of the small things (and even mundane tasks) priorities truly in the end would simplify things.
