A Clean Start

I'm not a very good house cleaner.... something I need to work on, but since the twins came along I have gotten snowed under in house work. My house had become not just messy, but dirty and miserable. It was contributing to my misery.
So I just thought I should share how blessed I feel right now! My very caring and sweet friends came over to dig me out of the hole that was my house. Now that they have left, my house feels safe, pleasant, like home... it smells good and it is making me more appreciate what I have. I went through room by room and prayed in my quiet, (the babies were asleep and Avery at school) clean house. I went into each room and prayed for each room and each person in our home. I haven't done that in a very long time... I guess since we moved in. I then lit candles just to add a nice ambieance! When Ken and Avery came in Avery went into each room and commented on how clean and nice it was. She said, "It looks like they vacuumed!" She went into her room and squealed with delight noticing her letters that had been put on the wall and how clean and organzied her room looked. Ken asked if I was trying to sell our house! Which pleased me because I always say I want my house to be "house showing clean"... meaning as clean as I kept it when we were trying to sell our house. So Thank You my angels!! I can't tell you how humbled and grateful I am to each of you! Love ya! Here's some pics of my nice clean home:
