Today I get to...

Today I get to clean the house.

Today I get to do laundry. 

Today I get to go to the grocery store and buy food for my beautiful family.

Today I get to finish packing for a trip I'm looking forward to.

How often do we gripe and moan about the chores we have to do, the piles of work we have, the errands we have to run?

I am so blessed to have a house that needs cleaning. To have clothes that need washing. To have a family that needs feeding.

 I'm thankful for this day and for the work that lies ahead. I'm thankful for the ability to do all of the things that need to be done.

Whatever you GET to do today, I hope you have a great day. Make it a great day!!


  1. I try to think about how blessed I am to have the things that I have, and it makes me feel better. But sometimes things in life can just royally stink too. Have a great trip!

  2. Thanks. It's a nice reminder that we're lucky to be able to do the things we do and care for the things we have.

    Have a safe trip :)

  3. My New Year's Resolution was to be grateful, and this is exactly the thing I'm trying to do. It's easy to forget how fortunate we are. Thanks for the reminder, Lisa!

  4. Ah, how could I not smile reading this post? :)

  5. Wow. Thanks for reminding me how lucky I am. And it's amazing how not complaining about something makes the task seem much easier.
