So...off to the laundromat my three and I went...because who wants to pay for a rug to be dry cleaned?! Not me! Armed with a bag full of library books, an erector set, and snacks (always snacks) we would have a lovely time. It felt like an adventure...an 'outing'.
And then I ran into mommas doing laundry there...not their rug...their clothes. It's a practical thing, doing laundry, I sit in front of my TV watching some silly daytime show...fold it all...pile it up....put it away (ok...so I often let my sweet husband put it away...I have a hard time getting it into the drawers...I don't know what my problem is!!!?) so that we can continue to have clean clothes to wear. This task I do every day. But rarely do I give thanks for those loud, rumbly machines. Rarely am I thankful for the luxury of washing my clothes just 20 steps from the drawers they sleep in. Well, today I'm thankful.
And I'm thankful for projects like Laundry Love. We have dear and wonderful friends here in Arkansas who ensure that nights like this continue week, after week, after week. We've been a few times....what a difference these devoted ones are making by loving and caring, befriending people.
So...I've done 2 loads already today...and 2 more wait on the floor to be washed. But this evening I fold with a heart full of thankful.
Hope you had a great day! It was beautiful here!
Have you heard of Laundry Love?
Anyone else have trouble putting the laundry away?!
