Day 5 of The Contentment Journal, June 6, 2019

What would devastate you if taken away is Day 5’s prompt.  Well that’s easy! My family, any one of all the members of my family, many of my extended family, like my sister that I depend on so much for unconditional support.

I think it easy to begin to take one’s spouse for granted when you have been together as long as my husband and I have been.  I am working hard to be a good wife to him.  That is a part of these 90 days to be the best wife/mother/grandmother/daughter/sister/friend that I can be.

I have a hard time managing my home when I have other demands on my time.  I am slowly learning to STOP that thing I am hyper focused on and make dinner.  I intentionally did that yesterday at 4:05 after spending about an hour sitting up my Babylock Evolution Serger.  I don’t use it as much as I should.  I would like to intentionally get better at using it.  I have patterns for clothes for my granddaughters I would like to make.  I am in the middle of making aprons for a friend for Father’s Day.  Aprons are super easy and I was happy to do it when asked.

I again kept the commitments to myself yesterday.  I am feeling good about today.  I have financial duties to do and then some cleaning and finally into the sewing room I will go!  It’s a gray day and I am hoping the sun comes out.

My body is feeling better this morning than yesterday so I am going to continue to let my body recover from too much yard work too many days in a row!
