Every year one of the top ten New Year’s resolutions is getting more organized. To be honest, it is a constant struggle in our home as well. Too often, we find ourselves “running late.” It drives me crazy, but I have to confess that it is mostly my fault.
This year the five of us sat around the dining table and listed one area in our own lives where we wanted to see improvement. Next, each family member took turns sitting on the “hot seat” while the others each suggested one area where personal improvement was needed. My seven-year-old son, who adores me, said, “Mama, I wish you wouldn’t get mad at me when I am running late for the bus on your Bible-study day.” ouch.
