Here is where we stop to recognize progress. Here is where we try and realize that we cannot possibly accomplish all of our goals in the amount of time we would like to accomplish them. Here is where we do not, under any circumstances, shame ourselves or drive ourselves crazy for not being able to get the kitchen clean in one day.
Here is where we remember that we are more than the conditions of our kitchens. We are more than the cleanliness of our floors, and we are much, much more then the dust on our bookshelves. We are women. We are mothers. We are workers, lovers, thinkers, and dreamers. We take care of our families; we take care of each other; we take care of the world.
So, please, remind me and help me remember that we must also take care of ourselves.
