Cleaning the House

Tuesdays we clean the main level, spotless. Vacuum, Scrub, Shine, Dust, Organize.








I love my house clean. It gives me peace. It makes me happy.

Then, I went upstairs which was clean yesterday. This is what I saw:







I was reading my scriptures today and came across this. It is exactly how I feel about trying to keep my house clean. In parenthesis I added the words to liken the scriptures unto myself:

Alma 56:16-17 "Yea, and (I was) depressed in body as well as in spirit, for (I) had fought valiantly by day and toiled by night to maintain (my home); and thus (I) had suffered great afflictions of every kind. And now (I am ) determined to conquer this place or die."

Many times after I get done cleaning I say “cleanliness is next to godliness” or “peace be still”. I just LOVE a clean house.

Oh C. Your kids rooms bring me peace- I'm pretty sure your wonderwoman wrapped in a tiny bow, but you just might have days like the rest of us.

I have something to aspire to! hah!

I hope none of my handlers were involved in the mess at your house. If so, just let me know and I will drop the hammer.
