Stress can be a killer. And not only that but it can really make you sick and bring on things you normally would not have. We need to learn to control our stress by letting things go.
When hubby and I married, we combined his 2 sons and my 1...I had been a "perfect" housekeeper...and liked everything in its place and super clean. I really took it to extremes. When taking on 2 more boys (age 6 and 9 at the time) and a husband that was more into family than keeping house...well let me tell you I was in alot of stress. I was working and trying to do it all and be a mother to 3 little boys. Well I came to the end of my rope one day and my boss who was a wonderful lady and mentor sat me down and said "let it go"...she said I could either have a happy family or a neat home...it hit me and made me realize that there is more to life than just cleaning house and working...and at that point family became first on my timeline. It was so freeing and the stress over keeping the house neat just disappeared. So we need to stop and think about what is more important in our lives and put that first and forget the rest.
