Prompt #37 for the Gratitude52 Art Journal Challenge is to illustrate gratitude for chores. As Jenny shared in this quote from an unknown author:
"Thank God for dirty dishes,
they have a tale to tell;
while others may go hungry,
we’re eating very well."
For me, I have honestly never minded doing housework chores. I think part of that is because I always felt like being a “homemaker” was part of my calling. My mother taught me an appreciation for a well-kept house and immaculate laundry. I admit I did not like to do laundry when I was first married and had to go to the laundromat. I remember when I got my first automatic washer and dryer. I went through the house gathering up anything I could to make a load so that I could do the washing. Loved it.
Sometimes I think I appreciate things more than some of the younger generation, because I know what it was like to (as my mother would say) “do without.”
