It’s in the Preparations

“In all matters, before beginning, a diligent preparation should be made.” ~ Cicero, De Officiis

For many people, today is a day of preparation. For Christians, tomorrow is Easter, the day without which, there wouldn’t be Christians. It’s not enough Jesus was born. He had to die and be resurrected. So tomorrow is a feast day.  Okay, for many Christians it’s just a feast, or Easter bunnies, egg hunts, the Easter parade, but it’s still a day of preparation.

We’re also in the middle of Passover, so many’s the family dinners that are still taking place.

So lots of preparation, even around here, and I’m not even hosting the holiday. But I’ll be cooking and bringing. I wanted to make a sly reference to it all in today’s post, but then when I saw today’s quote, I realized that it was more than a cheeky reference to this being a busy weekend for many.

This is actually very sound advice. Although I’m already ready to fly by the seat of my pants, I actually do try to prepare ahead of time for eventualities. I do make plans and prepare for them. It truly has helped in my success.

Sure, “the best-laid schemes o’ mice an’ men / Gang aft agley,” as my mom used to quote, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try to be prepared, right?
