By Mavis Jukes

occasionally needs someone's help. Like Jake and Me is a sweet
story of self discovery.

May you have warmth in your igloo, oil in your lamp,
and peace in your heart.
When you find yourself
overloaded with responsibilities and ready to scream because the trash
can is overflowing, the checkbook is unbalanced, the dog is unfed, and
no one is helping out, stop for a moment and ask yourself, "Will
this matter tomorrow, next week, next year?" Chances are it
won't, but what will matter is the quality of your relationship
with your family. No one will care that the floor needed
mopping, but someone very
well may remember being yelled at by a frazzled mom. Seriousness
and unhappiness are habits that you can change with a shift in
perspective. When your toddler "helps" you with the
dishes, look at her beaming face rather than the puddles on the floor.
Remember your priorities. You can do your daily routine with a
grudge nd a gorn or with a cheerful spirit. The choice is
Adapted from How to
