Clean out the old

Taking a house that was mistreated, unkempt and very dirty is a long and hard process. I have taken out garbage that the old owners left. moldy carpet, and clothing, fixed broken beds, painted, torn rusted and falling apart cabinets out among many other things and the house is still not "perfect." It is still dirty and needs more work. yes it would be wonderful to have the money that is needed to fix some needs and some wants for the house but sometimes we have to make do with what we have. {picture is of the worse room of the house before we started to work, The day after I bought the house}

It is like when we do wrong things in our life, not following the Commandments of our Heavenly Father and making wrong choices. It is not easy to change out habits and it is a constant daily battle at times to change our habits to good ones. Just like keeping a house nice is a daily process. We need to be aware of how we are living our life day by day. We also need to remember it is okay to ask for help, we can not always to everything alone. I know for some it can be hard to ask for help, its hard for me, but at times it is what needs to be done.
