A Monarch Butterfly at Ecotat Gardens in Hermon, Maine. Right down the road about 4 miles.
I'm taking my daughter for her annual checkup this morning, we'll follow with the usual shopping. At least I can talk to my wife first, she will call about 8AM to let me know how she's doing. I've taken over a CD player and her favorite CD's so she can hear that.
In a healthy family, life goes along and everybody pitches in to do the housework. Some people wonder why housework is such a big deal. It is because people need to contribute to a group in order to feel they be long to it. Housework makes us part of the same group-our house, our family. We make our house comfortable so we can feel comfortable and safe in it. We show love for ourselves by making our surroundings likeable. And when we do physical work. we can do our inner housekeeping. letting go of negative feelings that pile up during the day.
On days when life feels out of control, we feel good when we do one simple job: clean the messy desk, wash dirty dishes, shovel the snowy walk. In this way we regain control of our feelings as well as a perspective on those things within our control.
What simple work do I need to do to feel better today?
