Day 4 Learn

Along the journey, I've had to learn - and re-learn - many things.  I believe life is meant to always be a learning process.  You should learn up till the day He takes you to glory.

I thought I would share just a few insights with you today. (I am trying to limit these posts to 5 minutes, after all!)

  • Don't obsess about housework.  Your kids and grand-kids will not always be with you. Housework will always be there.

  • However, if you don't clean up your kitchen, your mother-in-law will show up!  This is a tried and true maxim. Works. Every. Time.

  • The more stuff you have, the more you have to clean.

  • Always stop and think, "Will it matter 5 years from now?"

  • Anytime you wash the car, it will rain.

  • Take a picture the first time you feel fat.  Years later you can look at it and think, "Wow I was unbelievably skinny that day."

  • Life goes better when you start the day out with something that makes you happy.

  • Nothing beats a belly-laugh, preferably one accompanied by some snorting and chuckling.

  • At the end of the day, it won't matter how many things off the to-do list you accomplished. What does matter is, "Did your people know you love them?"

What have you learned from your journey?

Y'know, that kitchen maxim. I can attest to its truth even without a mother-in-law.

So true about not worrying about a clean house, but enjoying the time with the kids or grand kids! All good things you have learned over the years.
