Children can give you a wonderful perspective on life. Just realizing how they have no concept of time is actually hilarious when you look back on the time you told them to “hurry it up!” When I ask them to hurry up I think they go slower just to irk me.
I am finding that only one thing can be accomplished at a time and this “multitasking” thing is really a step backwards. The more focused you are on one single project, the faster it gets done. Then you can go to the next and the next. I also am learning I cannot do it all and that makes me frustrated, but human. You can’t do it all even when you try your hardest. You just don’t have enough time in the day or energy to accomplish what it is that needs to be done. Those people I see that are involved in everything and seem like they “DO” do it all. But of course they don’t. You and I know they’re taking a nap on Sunday, or crashing on the couch in utter exhaustion eventually.
This picture is where I want to be someday. Enjoying my children and grandchildren and really “playing with them.” I think that is why grandparents say being a grandparent is the best thing ever. They have time, and a perspective and knowledge that us young people just don’t understand.
So now that I have gone completely off track on perspective I am really thinking about this because I have “so much work to do!” I am going insane! But I do love it, and I have always said “if you don’t love what you do, you need to get a new job.” Therefore, I am taking one thing at a time.

P.S. I might be in an article written by a journalist that works for AOL! Crazy! Wish me luck, or better yet pray for me!
One thought on “one thing at a time……”
Hi April,Yes, you were on AOL, and even better on front page! As I see you are a very hard worker who never gives it up! Which is very good, but please, keep in mind that your kinds need you even more than they need the money you make! It does not mean anything else, that yes, you are right, you can not do it all and give some time to yourself to relax and recover from day to day! Also, give time to the Lord!Regards, ex-cabinetmaker
