Yesterday I was thinking about my parents house. My mom is totally born organized and their house is always perfect - and I mean PERFECT. Better Homes and Gardens could show up unannounced and do a photo shoot with no prep work. For most of my adult years this has been a source of angst for me because I just can't seem to be it together like my mom.
Well, my folks are getting older. Mom had cancer earlier this year with surgery and radiation treatment. She's doing fantastic and the house is still perfect. She's 76 but you'd think she was 50 if you met her. Just last weekend she told me that she is having knee replacement surgery on Aug 20.
All these health issues have helped me frame the angst into something much more constructive. I now cherish the though hat there's a place on Earth that is so clean, perfect and peaceful. Pretty much all of my friends are like me - getting by with a lick and a promise and trying to clean the house around work and kids activities. I don't know another place that is as perfect as my folks house.
I just wanted to share how I was able to turn a negative "I'm not good enough" thought into something positive.
What about you? Do you have "comfort spots" like this?
