Feeling Guilty?

So - feeling guilty about the unmade beds, un-dusted shelves, unwashed dishes - piled high in a rickety leaning great wall of china - while you are head down over your beads - planning, stringing, wiring - designing - crafting - creating. Making.

Don't. Don't feel guilty. In a hundred years - no one will care if you vacuumed today. There is no legacy in laundry, no heirloom in ironing - no sparkle in a grandchild's eye when surveying a freshly mopped floor.

Don't wait.

There isn't always a tomorrow. Life is short - eat dessert first, and play with your beads every chance you get.

So true - and to answer your question: I don't :) Sometimes people will wrinkle their nose at the chaos in my house... while asking how I find time to spend with my family and do so many other things. That's how :)
