Is It Good Enough? Yes.

How many days do you end with the thought 'tomorrow I will do better.' I'm talking about trying to be that wife and mother that feels bad about never quite getting it right. I mean, just look on Facebook or Pinterest and there are thousands of ways to
show you how easy it is to have a 'company ready' home at all times, feed your children healthy home-cooked meals three times a day while being successful in business, working out that already rock hard body, AND always being ready to whip up a marvelous craft
with your children or for your home. Then you make sure your bills are always paid on time, your husband has your undivided attention every evening - oh and the smoking hot bedroom antics . . . can't forget those. Of course, you grow your own herbs, have
a weed-free garden, have read the latest bestsellers, volunteer your time, and home-school your kids.
Does this describe your life? If it does, God Bless You and please come over. If, like me, you feel you have failed your family frequently because the laundry wasn't folded or put away, your family ate leftovers in front of the tv, your dining room table
is covered with mail, homework, newpapers, and dirty coffee cup or two then all I can say is THANK GOD I'M NOT ALONE!
I say we start a new revolution - the Good Enough movement. My house is safe and warm. My family has food to eat and most days they are getting a home cooked dinner. I have held my job for 20 years and have earned the respect of the people that really matter
to me. I have two grown children and a teenager that are loving, loyal, honest and productive. My baseboards may be dusty, but my family has traditions that they want to continue with year after year. We have memories of laughter and love. So Is It Good
Enough? Today I dare to say - YES.
