I am in the process of attempting to slow myself down and I achieved this yesterday! My son and his dogs arrived. He moved out about 4 or 5 months ago and his room was left as is... Since he works and attends college, I have not pushed the fact that I have one room in my house that is in complete shambles.
His girlfriend was out of town yesterday and he was off work so it was perfect. My son (bless his heart) is one who slowly goes through life and just knows that everything will just fall into place at the last minute with no strain on his part. He is an amazing writer and is so witty but he brings procrastination to a whole new level. I assisted him in his room organizing and gently (or ever so gently) prodding him forward. A job that should have taken 1 1/2 hours took 4 (or was it 5). I have changed my mind about slowing down, I can't handle it! I will attempt to not put hot deadlines on myself but I have to go through life at a pace that is recognizable to me. Just like God sent me this amazing young man when I thought I would only have two daughters, God used him yesterday to accept myself as I am.
