Keeping it Real


This… Is the inside of my van.

It… Is… A… Mess.

No matter how often I clean it, it always ends up like this.

And you know what?

It… Is… Okay.

Its been cold. I have three small children. I am very busy.

There are days that I could have made the choice to bundle up and go clean it.


I made hot chocolate and cookies.

Or painted.

Or had a dance party.

Instead of having guilt every time I open the door…

I made a decision today to be joyful for the moments I had with my children that I will never get back.

The moments that were not wasted.

One of these days I will (or I might) clean my van… while they’re at school and I am home alone… (maybe).

But Today…

I’m going to build a snowman.
