Resolved to simplify!
I surprised Big D with my clean closet when he got home from his ski trip. Then he surprised me yesterday by cleaning out his side of the closet. Our closet organizing forays have spilled over to our dressers and even our nightstands. Big D suggested we tackle our bathroom drawers next. We practically filled a dumpster with junk from our closet (in addition to filling up our dining room table with the giveaway pile.) We are embarassed by how much junk we have. And as Big D said, "Even our junk is nice." One of our household resolutions for this next year is to lighten our load of stuff. We want to simplify!
Less really is more.
How do you keep the stuff to a minimum?
- I'm an on-the-run mom to 6 kids who studied and taught exercise science in a previous life. I love all things running, nutrition, and health-related. I usually run at zero dark thirty in the morning and am often quite hungry before, during, and after my run, but I live a rich, full, blessed life with my children, family, and friends. My faith in God is my anchor, and looking to Him and His promises allows me to live fully even when life circumstances are difficult. While running gives me an appetite, my desire is to hunger and thirst for righteousness more than for physical food.
