Laundry. Just the slightest mention of that dreaded word can bring a woman to tears! It is a never ending, boring task that is oh so necessary. Now, I must say that the act of simply starting laundry and then putting it into the dryer is cake. It is the folding, hanging and putting away that kills me! In a typical week, I do roughly 7 loads of laundry, sometimes less, sometimes more. Is that normal for a family a four? If not, please don't tell me.
For several months, I have been doing my laundry either once a week or maybe twice a week. I was miserable and grew tired of watching the dirty clothes pile up. Last week, I decided to do one load of laundry each day. What a relief! I have found it quite refreshing to have an empty laundry basket each day.
In closing, I want to say how thankful I am to have a washing machine and dryer to make my job a breeze. It is too easy to complain about what we must do rather than looking at how much we have. I am blessed to have clothes to wash and appliances to do it all. Thank you Lord for your wonderful blessings....even the ones I often overlook.
How do you approach laundry in your homes?
