Today I cleaned the bathrooms.
Yes, I consider this a “give.” I DO NOT like to clean the bathrooms. Nobody in this house does. So, when I do it, I consider it a give.
In fact, today I cleaned the bathrooms, did several loads of laundry, cleaned up the kitchen, and multiple other things.
On my birthday.
And you know what… I was SO VERY THANKFUL the entire time I was doing it.
Thankful for bathrooms to clean.
Thankful for a house to live in.
Thankful that I could stop and have a snack when I wanted.
Thankful I had a daughter to care for (she’s got bronchitis).
Thankful for my family.
So, my give to my family was cleaning the bathrooms.
The give I received from my Heavenly Father – so very much more.
