SIMPLIFY YOUR LIFE: Week 1 ~ Day 3

HOME SYSTEM #1 ~MAXIMIZING MEALTIME
     This is something I really need to work on!!!  
- Ways I can improve mealtime at the Barretts.
        ~Plan out (& keep to) 2 week menus
        ~Always have a clean kitchen before I start
        ~Always have a set time for supper (We're actually pretty good                                          
          about keeping this one.)
        ~Clean off table
        ~Put food and stuff away
        ~Rinse off dishes and start dishwasher
        ~Wipe down counters, appliances and table
- HOW CAN THIS HELP ME?
        ~This will save me time and allow me to cook better meals for my family.
         ~ I will be less stresses
-WHAT ROLES DO I PLAY IN THIS SEASON OF MY LIFE?
          ~Wife
          ~Mama
          ~Daughter
          ~Daughter-in-law
          ~Encourager 
          ~Friend
          ~Writer
- VERSES FROM PROVERB 31:
           (11) "Her husband had full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value."  I am to do my chores and task in a way that Barrett has no worries about the home front.  I need to work harder to please him; to anticipate his needs and to make sure his "must have" needs are met.
           (28)  "Her children arise and call her blessed."  I don't strive to be a good mama just in order to gain compliments - although selfishly I must admit that there are days where I really want (need) the kids, Barrett and sometime even others to tell me I'm doing a good job as a mama.  But it the end, if they grow up to be good, godly, productive members of society.
