The Excellent Wife

I had read about this book on a blog and I can't remember what one it was, there are so many awesome blogs out there. Anyway, after reading about it it struck a chord with me that it could help me. I want to have a happy husband and family. I want to do what Heavenly Father has sent me to do. So I need to balance it all out with his guidance and be the best person/wife I can be. 
I use to watch the Donna Reed show (repeats) and thought of what a wonderful wife she was (and mother). She was a great example of a woman who could do many things in her life yet seemed that her main priority was the love and care of her husband and children. I tried to be like her but have failed in many ways. 
At times I am sure too selfish and worried about what people would think about me. I know the show was that just a show but it could be a reality too. It is up to me!
I started reading it Monday and it is a good book. I will let you know a little more about it as I get more into it. 
I have also continued at a slower pace than planned ,due to illness this past weekend to get rid of toxic things in my life. Yesterday I got rid of music that wasn't helping me to have the spirit with me. It felt good. Today in between some housework, Dr. Appointment and a few errands I hope to do more clearing out of clutter. 
Hope everyone is having a good week so far. Hugs, Bobbi Jo
