Last sunday when I went to our temple in the morning I went through my usual rush. So when I arrived there I was to see these groups of women so beautifully dressed wearing fine and grand jewllery and relaxing. Everyone around me seemed so efficent. These ladies I thought always looked so neat and well dressed and their houses gleamed from top to bottom. So I figured I am doing something wrong. So why did I rush that morning which is normal for me and not unusual at all. I did get up early (thanks to bed coffee provided by dearest husband) o.k. I did brush my teeth before drinking ???!!!! I then caught up with my exercise walk then watered my rose garden cleaned the kitchen, put more clothes for laundry took bath prayed made breakfast that my husband likes prepared lunch that my family likes and OMG its time to run so took the first dress from closet and ran out of the door to my temple where I conduct our Balshala teaching children slokas our culture etc. So my rush.So I thought to myself I will become efficent and what do efficent persons do they make a LIST. Yes I will make my list too. First on my list ( at this point its still a mental list as no time to write) I will make my son water the plants and pick up his clothes and clean and my husband will not mess up my dining table with all his office work. So a very very determined me returned home just ready to implement what I thought was an efficent list to become a more efficent me. Now I too can compete with all these people I see and my home to will be spotless and gleaming. My dining table is going to be spotless and living room will be spotless, clutterless and no mess at all. As soon as I walked in through the door my husband and son came rushing to greet me (iwas gone one hour and half) and said they enjoyed the special food I had cooked for them and they had cleaned up the kitchen for me and they had done a host of other things too. I ofcourse smiled and grinned and proceeded to remove my slipper when I noticed that many other slippers were lying on the ground and not on the rack. as I walked through dining room I saw the table cluttered with papers and laptop and living room had my sons homework papers around. Oh my LIST. so I opened my mouth to tell (YELL) at H and S to clean this and that when they watching football asked me to come and sit with them and made space in between. As soon as I sat down (still with mouth open you know to tell or Yell about my list) my husband went and fixed me lunch and son brought water and they both asked me to relax. Ofcourse the list was fading and as I ate I thought what was more important in my list. spending time with my family and their love and affection moved from bottom of list to top. I figured its ok for dining table to be cluttered or something else not spotless but I had what was important for me. So now I live with my new list . Do you think I did wrong????
