My Little Helper

I love the age when children think chores are fun. When I tell Naomi it's time to do the laundry, she's excited!! Wish I could say the same for myself and the other kids.

What makes us change our attitude toward chores?

Is it because we know there are funner things we could be doing?

Or is it because we've done the same thing over thousands of times and it becomes boring?

Whatever the reason, I know that we can be thankful. Maybe we won't get excited, but instead of complaining about the chores we can find ways to be thankful.

Take the laundry for instance. I'm thankful God's given us plenty of clothes that get dirty and need cleaned.

I'm thankful for a washing machine so I don't have to do it by hand.

Also I'm thankful for the dryer so my clothes can get dry quickly.

I'm thankful that I have a lot of laundry because it means I have a lot of people in my family.

So, while I may not get excited about doing the laundry like Naomi does, she does remind me to be thankful.

"And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men"

Colossians 3:23

"Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name."

Psalm 100:4
