the family manager creed

The other day, I picked up a few books at Barnes & Noble. I’m so excited to dive into them, and I just started reading “The Busy Mom’s Guide To A Happy Organized Home” by Kathy Peel. I’m still in the Introduction, but I came across something I have to share with you. The author has just stated that by running a family/home, you “oversee an economic institution”. Then, Kathy shares The Family Manager Creed:

I oversee the most important organization in the world
Where hundreds of decisions are made daily
Where property and resources are managed
Where health and nutritional needs are determined
Where finances and futures are discussed and debated
Where projects are planned and events are arranged
Where transportation and scheduling are critical
Where team building is a priority
Where careers begin and end
I am a Family Manager

I know I have days where I feel overwhelmed, and like I’m not doing anything meaningful. But reading that creed, reminds me that everything I do, even folding the laundry (over and over) has a purpose. And even though I’m not rewarded financially for my “family manager” duties, there are rewards with even deeper benefits… I just may not be able see them for years!
