The Ideal Homemaker #18

#18 Just for Today

" In summary, an ideal homemaker is an artist in general management so that her home is able to function at its peak performance and fulfill its lofty purpose and so that she along with her husband and children can reflect the joy, order, and progressive spirit therein. She does not try to accomplish this thirty years at a time , but strives to practice being an artist in management and homemaking JUST FOR TODAY"

Then she says, " Perfection is a process, not an event.
Don't be discouraged if you are not able to reach your goal overnight.
Practice makes perfect - just so it is the right kind of practice."

I'm not sure that I would be aiming for perfection but I do agree about taking life one day at a time.
Taking life that way means that each morning we wake up to a whole new world of opportunities and possibilities.
I would be aiming for a well run household that brings my family and me a sense of peace and contentment, and gives us all plenty of time to enjoy our home and lives.

She finishes off with words from Ralph Waldo Emerson , who had so many good things to say - " That which we persist in doing becomes easier for us to do; not that the nature of the thing itself is changed, but that our power to do is increased."
