Perfectly Flawed

This is just about as good as things get in my room - and I'm far from it today!
Sunday night around 7 pm I checked my children's backpack for the first time all weekend.  I discovered that we were supposed to have a bag of cotton balls and more glue sticks for school ... today.  Oooops.  There are piles of laundry to be folded and delivered, the floors have been swept, but there are sticky spots which need mopping and I keep finding dishes throughout my house that didn't make it into the dish washer.  We still have Valentine decor here and there and it just seems there aren't enough hours in the day.  And yet, it seems like others have this all together, already.   Am I going to be the only one who doesn't get the cotton balls and glue sticks to school on time?

So I'm reminded once again that the myth of perfection is just that - pure fiction.  Our home has crumbs and piles of laundry, the beds are made by little people which means wrinkles are the norm.  The counters have toothpaste from this morning's rush out the doors and we didn't get the breakfast mess cleaned up.  And if you visit the little walk-in closet, you will witness about twenty projects waiting to be completed. 

I'm glad to know that it doesn't have to be perfect to be great, or beautiful or even wonderful.  Whatever I can do will be enough.  Living with imperfection is the norm for all of us.  What's the most imperfect spot of your home today?
