Today’s “To-Do” List

28 Aug

My life is busy and sometimes can be flat-out-chaotic. Between two 9-month olds who are now very mobile and two teenagers, there are moments I feel like 24 hours in a day is NOT ENOUGH. However, in the craziness of today I will do the following:

  • Tell my children I love them more.
  • Write my husband a love note.
  • Extend an extra dose of patience to someone I want to throw a shoe at. IE… my teenagers.
  • Vacuum less (Okay who am I kidding? That wont happen)
  • Smile more.
  • I will not be so hard on myself. Instead be the best I can be.
  • When I want to complain, I will thank God for something he has given me or done for me instead.
  • I will make today count. I may not be an important executive of a prestigious company or have a bunch of letters after my last name; but I am the CEO of the Elliott Household. I am a busy and important woman in my own little bubble, so today, I will not take that for granted.

    I Love the CEO part now that I can be to make my name sound like it’s important. If I took a picture of my house right this second you would flip. Yet I thought to myself I will take a few seconds out before having to tackle this house to read your blog. Glad I did I love it. After Sundays service I have to believe the Lord wants us to work as if he is right there sitting down watching us. It was amazing!!!!! Chris always delivers the word so profoundly to his church that I don’t think many people forget what he talked about. Well have a blessed day with the babies and big kids. I called you yesterday but you never called back. I only had 4 kids and so wanted the babies to come over. I can’t stand how cute they are. I love you and talk to you soon. Momma

    I could remember to do a few of these things! Sometimes I get so wrapped up in what needs to be done that I forget the little/big things that actually matter! 🙂
