Gratitude and Appreciation

my journey into being thankful for what i have

Mopping with Daddy

I am a firm believer that we can be grateful for nearly anything, but one thing I’m grateful for is how much my kiddos love to help.  Especially with things like cleaning the house.  I’m fortunate to have a husband who likes to clean, so my boys have always seen cleaning as something that guys do.  When I was young, I still remember (with perfect clarity) making a comment about how I couldn’t clean the toilet, because only boys do that.  I had always seen my daddy do it, so I just didn’t think it could be something I would be expected to do.  Suffice it to say, I learned a very important lesson that day about how wrong I was in my thinking, and it got through – loud and clear!  We haven’t had anything like that happen as of yet with our kiddos… but cleaning is something that they see as “guy time” because it’s the two of them and their daddy, getting to do things together.  And the most exciting thing to do (and fight about doing) is mop.  =-)  I’m grateful to have kiddos who enjoy things like mopping.  And to be able to afford a good mop.  And to have a floor to mop in the first place!  More than anything else, I’m grateful for my little family.  Because they always help me to see that there are SO many things to be grateful for.  =-)
