I love Martha Stewart. All of her products, magazines, books etc. are beautiful. Why do so many people think that life has to be all or nothing? Martha's ideas are meant to be a stepping stone for you and to teach you how to do things if you would like to learn. It's not meant to intimidate or guilt you into feeling bad because you can't make felt mice. LOL. Seriously though, I used to want everything to be perfect. I still do. It's just that now I actually HAVE children and they always throw a wrench in my perfect plans. So I have a new motto because perfect is really unobtainable. Now when I look at Martha's magazines I remember that it's staged and life isn't really like that. Mistakes make us human and remind us of what IS important. Perfect is BORING! Whenever you look at a newborn and see all the little lines on the bottom of their feet- that's when you remember that only God does perfect.
Here's the reason why I love being a stay at home mom: these beautiful children. Some days are harder than others, but I wouldn't change it. I have the most important job that God created for us. Raising his children to be happy, healthy, loving adults.
