A woman in church remarked,"Every day I look outside my window and see you hanging clothes on the line and I feel so sorry for you."
I was sort of surprised at her comment. Hanging clothes is a choice of mine. I don't dislike it as much as dishes or dirty diaper changes. In fact, I am thankful for the moments of sunshine, for the neatly lined up towels, jeans or other items. I sort of enjoy it. In fact it is easy to be thankful for everyday normalcies when you consider the alternative.
Other things I am thankful for;
VBS, VBS, VBS, VBS, VBS, VBS, VBS, VBS, I do love VBS
