Day by day.
And some days success is measured in ways that aren't easy to describe. Content moments sitting in the trunk while mommy cleans the garage(ha!), smiles after lunch and gifts brought home from the park. Some days the days are long, I feel restless with my inability to complete tasks but really when the day comes to an end the unfinished projects that stack and pile in little corners of my check list and closet mean nothing. These little hearts and minds are the true importance. If only I could always keep perspective. Ha! Isn't that truly what we all are working toward? Oh perspective.
I constantly miss my grandmothers phone calls. In the last couple years, they were daily sometimes a few a day. She had perspective by the minute. Living 82 years, 5 children, a lot of heartache, a lot of love will fix perspective close to your heart. A meticulous housekeeper in her young days, she often reminded me that she never missed a single day of cleaning, but would give anything for a moment more of playing with her so loved children.
To perspective and her dear influence in my life.
Love you, Mana.
