Today was that day for me. The sink clogged up; really clogged up! It had been slow, but today, it gave up.
Nasty things backed up into the dishwasher, and it all went downhill from there. I was able to clear the dishwasher and plunge everything into the sink by running the garbage disposal and plunge my heart out. :)
Then I got to thinking...... I actually have a dishwasher, and I have running water, and I actually have a garbage disposal! There are many people who have no such thing; Dishwasher, garbage disposal OR Water!
According to American standards, we are not wealthy. But according to the world's standards, we are quite wealthy! I need to remember to keep this in mind on days that are different than what I am used to.
So today, I worked hard to unclog the sink. It is still not unclogged.
And my house, according to American standards, is not that big!
I started looking around at my baskets and shelves and then began to think of how blessed I really am; clogged up sink and all! I have had many of these baskets for years and years; all bought at thrift stores. :)I think I need to dust up there!
Today was really a lovely day. All of my girls were awesome! We were able to get many things cleaned and I was able to model to my girls what attitude we should have when things are not quite as we think they should be. :)
Thank you Lord, for a wonderful day!
Did I mention that when I was sweeping my floor that my broom broke? :/
