If you get my Freebie Friday newsletter, you most likely read Midge’s question about discouraging days in homemaking (if you don’t get my newsletter be sure and subscribe via the sticky note in the upper right corner of the blog). Read below to see how I can relate! Molly
I have had many discouraging days in homemaking throughout the years! I have tried new recipes and some have completely flopped, I’ve burned my fair share of meals and at times I’ve found myself too busy to prepare the wholesome meal I’d hoped for and have opted for cereal or egg sandwiches for dinner. These times remind me that life happens and that we shouldn’t strive for perfection. Homemaking should be more of a mindset and not a skill we need to conquer. If we can approach it with joy and enthusiasm, even our toughest of days can still end in hope for a fresh start the next day.
I’ve also found that my attitude about a discouraging day or event can set the mood for the rest of the family. If I can approach the difficulty with a “glass is half full” mentality, I find the others in my household tend to follow suit. If I burned our homemade pizza beyond recognition, I might say something like “Well, that didn’t go very well. Thank goodness for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches!”
Love ya, Molly
