My days are filled mostly with disorder; crumbs, piles, full diaper pails and sheets that need a wash.
The mess trips me, gets in front of me, makes me pay a whole lot of attention.
So I stew.
I feel mixed up, jumbled, messy.
I act disheveled, mother my babies from feelings of unrest.
The mess is obvious, and makes me act a mess.
I am a product of what I see. What I choose to see.
I am also a mirror to my children.
They will do as their messy mamma does.
I can’t be that.
I need sweetness in the disorder, beauty, hope, meaning, life.
Can messy show that there is real life happening?
Can messy be a great adventure?
Can a mamma who feels a mess most days reflect beauty, peace, and understanding to her children
(so they will be beautiful, peaceful, and understanding?)
I must make beauty in the mess
I must make peace with the mess
I must understand that our mess is a product of our movement, our play, our time, our adventure.
I will see that in the crumbs, in the piles, in the diaper pails and dirty sheets.
They are our mark, our story, our life.
This mamma’s masterpiece.
