That Never Ending Laundry Pile

Don't think of it as "doing laundry." It's a blessing to have family active enough to dirty their clothes. I had a friend whose very disabled daughter never got her clothes dirty. She told me envied my laundry pile! She saw the blessing in having an overflowing hamper! Those chores are a blessing to have! Even simple, repetitive tasks can be done with JOY and THANKSGIVING. 

Young mothers, it's work to change your attitude, but it is so worth it to have a cheerful family that is willing to help you do your work in the years ahead. If you complain and show a bad attitude while cleaning your home, expect to see that magnified in your children as they grow. Self-discipline in this area will go a long way in blessing your family.

Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. I Thessalonians 5:18
