hello there, friend,

after my last post, i received the most encouraging email from a friend, with grown children of her own. she reminded me that my kids will not remember the messy house, but that we went to the creek, they won't remember whether the laundry was done or the bathroom was clean, but that we ate outside under the grape arbor and played games together...

it's hard to adjust when we want things to be perfect (although to be clear, i'd take something between perfection and chaos...). i read this quote by anne lamott the same day... "perfection is shallow, unreal, and fatally uninteresting." i may make it this summer's motto.
