Prove It, Do It

Prove It, Do It

My husband cleaned the bathrooms and vacuumed the house yesterday while I was out at an appointment. I’ve been needing some help with getting to these things. I really do appreciate the effort, though feel some push-pull inside — I didn’t get to it. I should have gotten to it. Am I lazy? Does he think I’m lazy? I just need to get more organized…

As I was mulling over how I want (and need) help (especially on the home front at present), I was struck by how much I fight against it. Like, if I don’t clean everything myself, it doesn’t count. It’s cheating. I can’t cross it off the list unless I personally have done it.


My thought for today: What if I don’t have anything to prove, and what if I don’t have to do it all by myself?

      Absolutely! As I was digging through the “I’m supposed to do it all” feelings, I was reminded of how much no one is supposed to do it all or any one type of work, and that it is important for the kiddos to see us sharing the load. 🙂
