Oh, you are a person after my own heart! I felt like you were describing my own chaotic household!

This almost reads like two separate essays: the humor piece on house smells, and the devotional on the mother who blessed you. The moods didn't quite mesh, although both pieces had considerable merit. Maybe rework them as two articles?

Nicely done; you're a good writer.

I agree with above, although I think a good transitional paragraph would have melded the two halves. I was raised with boxers...the stories we could share. Thanks for posting.

The sweetest aroma a house can have is that of hospitality for all who enter born of a deep love for God! I used to fret over my home until I stumbled upon this realization. Now, I think more about my service than the one dirty dish left in the sink:) Good article.

Wow, how do I relate! I also have a sharpei, similarity. I enjoyed reading your story, I like humor--that's like tacky glue (LOL) in family life. I also learned a lesson..I agree. God bless ya, littlelight
