Letter from Basic Training:
"How do you do everything you do?"
"When do you sleep?"
"What are you taking? I want some."
I've received a lot of comments like these lately,
especially since I've been blogging
and they always make me laugh.
I'm just like you.
My house gets messy.
My budget gets tight.
And my voice gets a tad loud at times!
But in answer to the question:
How do you manage to do all that you do?
I'm not totally sure.
But I do try to follow one rule of thumb.
PUT THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS FIRST.
CUT OUT THE REST.
This week, in Service Boot Camp,
I am discovering what can happen
when I cut TV viewing entirely out of our daytime routine.
I have found that the kids play together...nicely.
They create and build things.
They make up silly stories and role-play.
And I feel like I own my house again and not like my TV owns me...and my time.
And I still manage to get my fortune cookies baked!
What can you cut out of your life to make room/time to serve others?
