The Ideal Homemaker #5

#5 Meet the Minute

" An ideal homemaker makes the best use of her time and energy by being efficient so that she is able not only to keep up with her housework, but she is able to be a companion to her husband and a friend and teacher to her children. She is also able to pursue some personal interests which further contribute to her happiness and development."

I don't think she is talking about being superwoman, just using time efficiently, getting things done so they are not dragging you down and so you are available to take up opportunities as they present themselves.

It is so much easier to be spontaneous if all the regular things that maintain our lives are kept up with and our free time is really free.

"Nothing is so fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of an uncompleted task"
William James
