Sometimes I forget all of the things I am blessed to be able to do. God gives me the ability to do so many things.
I GET to make the bed, sweep and mop the floor AND do the dishes. I GET to vacuum, scrub the shower and toilet AND dust. (I detest dusting…so very much…but still I’m blessed that I CAN DO IT. SOMETIMES I forget.)
I GET to bleach the sinks and wipe toothpaste off the basins. I GET to pick up shoes, clothes, basketballs, toys of various sorts up from the floor. i GET to sweep out the garage and take the recycling to the dumpster.
I GET TO DO ALL THOSE THINGS! I am so blessed!!! …but…SOMETIMES I FORGET. *sad face here*
You may think I’m being a total sarcastic idiot right now AND IF YOU KNOW ME, you know sarcasm is one of my favorite tones at times. It’s another gift God gives me, I think. BUT HERE, I PROMISE YOU, I’M NOT BEING SARCASTIC.
Although everything that I’m listing isn’t the absolute funnest things to do and do get a little overwhelming at times due to the consistency that I have to do them….
I AM TRULY THANKING GOD FOR THEM…I thank Him that I am able to do them. Sometimes I FORGET that it is a blessing. It is a blessing to have a house to clean, to have a messy family to pick up after and to chase dust bunnies who seem to truly be ALIVE in my house at times. They are all blessings. …but…(whispering) sometimes, I …forget. 😦
SOMETIMES I FORGET! Sometimes I hate that I have to do them. Sometimes I feel stressed out, because I have to do them. SOMETIMES I wish I could just snap my fingers and some kind of little crew would come in over night –like apparently the Elf on the Shelf does –and instead of reeking havoc as he does, they clean my whole house spotless. AND WHILE THEY ARE AT IT, they can make lunches for the next day and create home made dinners I could just pop out of the freezer and warm up. SOMETIMES I forget that being able to do all the things I do…IS A BLESSING.
I could be sick, depressed or even dying. I could be disabled and not physically able to do these things. I truly am blessed.
SOMETIMES I FORGET!
God allows me to be able to do all I do.
…and I’m sorry, Lord, that sometimes, I forget.
