What this blog is not

Sometimes I read blogs and think that other people have everything figured out.  I know they don't (no one really does), but it can cause me to wonder why I am not quite as “with it” as these other mothers.

I don't want any reader here to ever feel looked down on.  It is my intention to encourage and motivate. I am working toward a peaceful home too.  I don't have it all figured out.  If you could meet me in real life you would know that 🙂

Delighting in the Days is not the writings of a deliriously cheerful mom who grins constantly. The clouds don't part when I hang the laundry out to dry and my children don't wear halos. We are a real family with real life struggles.

As a newlywed, I had no idea how to be a good wife. I didn't know how to cook anything besides scrambled eggs and shortbread (not together).  As a new mother, well, let's just say I was clueless.  I thank God for Christian women who have shown we the way, for blogs and books that have helped me figure a few things out, and for mistakes I have learned from.

I freely admit that creating a happy home is hard work.

I wasn't born organized (as flylady says), nor was I gifted with a naturally bubbly personality.   I often fret and worry. My house is not always clean (like I said in my about page, if you stop by unannounced, you are likely to find my kitchen a mess and the kids and me covered in flour.)

I'm human and full of faults.  In fact, I'm pretty sure I'll disappoint you at some point.  I hope you will extend grace in my direction as I will in yours.

I'm glad you're here!

  1. Titus 2: 3-5 is how women learn to be good wives. When older christian women are remiss in this type of mentoring the family unit can become very shaky and be set up for failure.
