I often feel like I live in my laundry room, and have even considered putting a television in there. No matter how many times I load the dishwasher, the sink always seem to be full of dirty dishes. I hear the words “whats for dinner” every afternoon, sometimes even before lunch. The carpet always needs vacuuming, the shoes always need to be picked up, the bookbags are always scattered everywhere, and the mud from outside always seems to get tracked in, right after I mop and wax the kitchen floor, of course.
I guess if I focused on the daily chores all the time, I would end up a very grumpy camper, but usually I just operate in autopilot mode and keep plugging along.
However, there are “those days”, when my autopilot shuts off and my not-so-wonderful-chore-frustrated-nobody-ever-helps-me-do-anything-around-here mood seems to overtake my personality. Not a good day, I promise you.
Recently my sister forwarded me an email about our daily chores, and a different way to look at them. I typically delete any email that looks like it has made its way around the world twice and is now just making it to my inbox, but this one made me stop and think.
So I want to share it with you today. It gives light to a new perspective about how we should really look at life, instead of only through the eyes of a tired super-mom.
My prayer for this week is that I will remember to pray these short, little prayers each day, instead of focusing on the overload of mommy duty. Each day holds a certain challenge for me, and I hope God will use these prayers to mold me and shape me into a chore-champion!

Lord, help me wash away all my selfishness and vanity, so I may serve you with perfect humility Through the week ahead.
