Many business have a mission statement. The president wants the company to accomplish a certain task and the mission is usually clearly stated in 1 statement.
While I was reading Organizing Junkie's blog I found a wonderful mission statement for her household. I was going to create my own statement, but she did such a great job. I printed out this statement and put a copy on my refrigerator.
My Housekeeping Mission Statement
To provide an inviting and peaceful household environment, for my family and all that enter, that is conducive to living simply, loving deeply and laughing abundantly. I will make strides everyday to achieve this by practicing and teaching good daily habits and routines along with effective organizational skills. I will graciously and cheerfully serve my family and genuinely enjoy my commitment to creating a home sanctuary that is above all else pleasing to God.
This serves as a great reminder when I don't feel like doing the housework or am tired from a long day of serving my family.
Thanks Organizing Junkie!
