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!
