My Thankful Thought

Sometimes the dishes overwhelm me. There's always a nice little pile going. I'm not sure how only three people can manage to use so many dishes. Especially when one of us isn't even half size yet.

And I majorly dislike washing dishes. I'd rather fold sheets. That's saying something. Pots and pans are the worst. I've been known to burn the bottom of things when I cook so that always makes them horribly awful to clean.

We've been in this house two years and I still have problems with the stovetop burning things. It's totally the stovetop, right?

I've been trying to see the beauty in my never-ending, not-so-lovely pile of dishes. Do you know what this pile of dishes means?

It means we have food. Lots and lots of food. Good food too. Sanitary food.

These dishes remind to be thankful for what we have. So many people do not have enough food or clean water to drink. We do. In abundance.

These dishes are beautiful, just like the laundry covered living room. They speak of happiness, family, and fullness. So this Thanksgiving, I am thankful for my smelly mountain pile of dishes.

We have so many blessings to share with others.

May I never forget that.

What is on your thankful list this Thanksgiving?
