On an upswing

It’s Tuesday,

and I cooked dinner.

Anne helped and we are actually going to sit down to a homemade meal.

It might sound simple or routine, but we’ve been lacking, because I’ve been too ill to make them.

There have been plenty of meals made by the girls or my hubby, but not by me.

And I’m so thankful for the ability to make this one.

The girls asked me if I’ve enjoyed the break from routine.

“Are you at least glad you’ve not been doing dishes, laundry, and cooking all the time?”


I smiled and explained that all though those things can become monotonous I would rather be doing them then sitting in my room next to the air purifier.

They seemed to understand,

at least a little.

I’m sure for them it’s just work.

I used to feel the same way and at times I still look at it in that light.

But being able to serve my family by household chores really is a blessing.

I’m enjoying the ability to fulfill one chore today.

Praise the Lord for the ability to serve my family!
