Thankful Chores

In the middle of my chores I try to remind myself:

*Be thankful for dirty dishes, it means we have plenty to eat.
*Be thankful for dirty laundry, it means we had lots of messy fun together.
*Be thankful for a dirty floor, it means there are many active feet in my home.
*Be thankful for the dust, it means I was too busy with my little one to notice it settling.
*Be thankful for being so tired, it means that I am a mom!

Sorry.. i was helping out a friend with their blog and was still logged in as them! I came by to say thank you for reminding us of the positive in the seemingly negative!

Thanks for writing this, Leane. It is such an excellent reminder.

Now that I think of it, some of my very favorite people have the messiest homes...perhaps because they care more about people than about having sparkling floors and empty sinks. ;)
