It was 6:30 pm and I had a lot left to do. I really needed to clean up dinner and do the dishes. There were baths to be given and clothes to be laid out for church tomorrow. There were reports to be done for work and a kitchen floor that needed to be swept (again!). There was laundry to put away and a lesson to be planned for church. There was a bathroom that need to be cleaned and animals that needed to be fed.
So, I chose the most important thing to do first.
I laid on the floor and played with my kids! It's surprising how an hour of wrestling and tickling and giggling accomplished more than doing the dishes would have.
