Dear Fly Lady,
12 years ago, when I was a young woman, new wife, and new mother, a kind woman told me of you and that she wished she had known the “right way” to clean when she was my age. I signed up for the emails and shined my sink and totally bought into the process. However, as you can imagine, my perfectionism always got in the way. If I couldn’t get it “right” I didn’t do it at all. And if I wasn’t going to do it, I didn’t make anyone else do it either. Our house was figuratively falling apart around us, even as we wallowed in our own clutter.
This summer, I decided that it was finally time to get serious. I took your plan and customized it for myself and the kids. Their summer activities now include: household chores, music, reading, exercise, devotions and more. We’ve been on track for a week now, and everyone is settling into a more disciplined lifestyle. Already, I’m seeing differences in our home. It may take us the whole summer (15 minutes at a time), but I believe that we can escape CHAOS and keep it that way! How nice it is to reclaim our home as a family. Thank you for believing in us and teaching us to FLY.
