Black and White, Featured, Things I Hope My Kids Will Read One Day, Travel

“It’s all so crazy — how do we possibly begin to sort this out?”

August 17, 2017

Times like this make me think about something my mom always says, “Sometimes your house has to get messier before it gets cleaned.” Sounds funny, right? But let me give you an example that she might give you. Let’s say you’re cleaning out that “junk drawer” in your kitchen because one day you’re going to have to pull out all the stuff you’ve been throwing in there. All the stuff you didn’t have time to deal with, or you didn’t know what to do with, or you thought you might use later but then forget about. One day, that junk starts falling out of the bottom of that drawer or onto the floor every time you open it, and that drawer can become so full and heavy that the knob starts to come off when you pull on it. Sometimes it gets so full the drawer can come completely off track. There’s no getting around the fact that eventually, you’ll have to start pulling everything out of that drawer and take a good look at what you’ve let pile up out of sight there, put everything out in the open and sort it all out.

“Hopeful people make me nuts!”

Hahahaha! I love my friends. I love our conversations just as much. ☺️

Happy Thursday everyone!

    The image goes straight to my heart. If tranquility could exist in an image, this would be the one.
