Spring Cleaning Your Mind
Well, I discovered this morning that a small stovetop fire is very handy to locate winter cobwebs. The soot outlines the formerly invisible trails like varicose veins on your walls. Yikes! Were those there for months and I never saw them? What else am I not seeing that is right in front of my face?
Madama reminded me that I might choose a less destructive cleaning technique. I informed her that she was welcome to drop by and dust whenever she pleased. Peeves chuckled at that and then was banished from the kitchen.
Is it possible that when we’re wearing the different hats of career, home maintenance, self-care, and supporting friends and family that a tidy home is further on the “to-do” list and a priority that doesn’t reflect our self-worth? Sigh, can I be more grace-filled with myself that a few cobwebs aren’t a sign of neglect but a chance to notice that my priorities are actually in order.
Periodically, I have a lengthy, girlie phone chat with a particular friend. I often dust while we dish. Apparently, I need to call her more often. Madama concurred. Peeves just wanted back in for a treat. All’s well with the world.
