Getting organized helps me feel prepared; feeling prepared helps tasks feel manageable.
The Proverbs 31 woman had no fear of the snow for all her household were clothed with scarlet. Wardrobe management always makes me remember her -- thousands of years between, but mamas still looking after the needs of their families, making sure no one is inappropriately dressed for the season. It's a cheering thought to have some camaraderie with her because I'm certainly not buying fields and growing flax and weaving it into linen these days...and I'm not sure I ever will, for that matter.
Besides getting organized, I found out that we didn't need that much for this winter (because I bought the girls' clothes a size up last year -- for reasons I can't entirely remember)....a few long sleeve shirts for Elijah and a couple of pairs of jeans for Adele and we would be set...more than that, we didn't even need to venture to the big consignment sale!
Today, with the help of the somewhat local kid's consignment store, I completed the shopping and we are Good. To. Go!
My six year old can no longer make decisions about what she likes and doesn't like. This is baffling to me. She needed a pair of tennis shoes...she said, "I don't KNOW if I like them." To which I replied, "Do they fit? Good let's get them." The same child is completely enthused by her new shoes now, but I guess in the store it's just too much pressure. MAYBE this the reason God moved me to buy too big clothes last year, because He knew I couldn't handle the indecision from my little daughter. By the way, all she wants for Christmas is her two front teeth. And all I want is a break from loosing teeth because it's too gross. Lol.
And with Fall just around the corner, I'll sign off with a
Happy Fall, Y'all!
