Your duty is to sanctify yourself. Yes, even you. Who thinks that this task is only for priests and religious? To everyone, without exception, our Lord said: Be ye perfect, as my heavenly Father is perfect. St. Josemaria

Time.

Well, I am one of those working progress in all aspects of my life.. I guess those who are saints were working progress on Earth and we now see the end results. What did they do? How did they do it? Oh.. were did they get the energy to do it!

As I work on my mortification this week, wastefulness: TIME. (she's a dear friend and an enemy all at the same time, a love and hate relationship we have.)

A Few of time saving things:

Over at Family-Centered, they are having a Great SALE on their planners. (I have one to help me with prayer intentions, to feast days, to what are we doing today). They are so beautifully done and very useful.
A Little Way Chore Chart/Kid's Rule of Life:

I got this great idea over at Raising(&Teaching) Little Saints . What I did different (we are on week 4 now) is that I made it a kid's chore/schedule all in one place. I laminated it and we just check off with a maker: what is done or not done or done poorly and what is next or not next for them. I have to tell you its be easier and we have saved on Time in what is next for the kids to do or not do and where I should be. For my oldest, since she can read it has no pictures and for the younger two (not counting the 2year just yet) is all in clip art so that they can see and just do and save me from wasting time! :)

What mother doesn't have one of these time saving love making slow cooker:

So Have I wasted time yes, but I have to see that I have been first of all more aware of where my time is going and I learn to use some useful tools.

God Bless you !
