A piece of perspective

I have been thinking a lot about what this word means. The ability to stand between yesterday and tomorrow and understand how today fits in. To look beyond the moment with a view toward the whole life. Oh, how very much I need just a few more pieces of perspective at times? I'm a slow learner but learning nonetheless to resist the urge of letting a clean house, cluttered space's, dirty dishes, early morning's, insecurities and my to-do list take precedence over those moments of life that I will never be able to steal back. I have many more years of my life to "keep house" but the years I have left to invest in my family and friends will pass just as quickly as they came. So, if at the end of the day I feel as though I have accomplished little I will reflect and then realize I have probably accomplished much!

How hard it is to live in this mindset...yet how very important. Thank you for the insight.

I LOVED this, Tana!! As I'm reading, I'm fighting off mommy-guilt and ignoring the call of dirty dishes from the kitchen (hear them?) trying to steal a few moments for myself, my sanity, so I can be a better mom...And being a good mom doesn't mean having the cleanest house!! Well said.
