Sometimes I wonder, if I just worked a little harder or was a little more organized, could this remodel move forward any faster? Could all these projects finally get checked off my list? Could I get back into working on my kids memory books or finally starting, really starting on organizing my grandmother’s photos? If I could just get my act together, would I finally be able to organize all my drawers and cupboards and get out to the garage to finally work through all those bins and boxes.
This old window sat in my entryway for months, waiting for me to hang it up on this wall. There were many reasons this window took me so long to hang up, but one afternoon I just decided I was going to do it. I had to jump through a few hoops in finding the stud and securing the screws in the wall, but by that evening this pretty window was up on the wall and the result was pure happiness. Such a little spot in a corner of my home that brings me such joy.
This project, this tiny completed piece of my home, gives me hope that the rest will come together, it just may take a little time. I realize that time will march forward, that life will move through its up and down. I don’t decorate or organize my home all day. Like many of you, my life is full. I do a lot each day, trying to do all the things to just keep my little family moving forward. So, maybe it isn’t about being more organized or working harder, maybe it is about patience and time. Trusting that I have the time, that the time will come, that little by little I will check these projects off my list. Patience and time, truly an amazing combination for success.
