  1. We are truly sisters! Oh, how I love the smell and feel of warm, clean clothes fresh out of the dryer, or right off the clothesline on a sunny day! It IS a sweet reminder to be thankful for those who wear the clothes. I have always used the time of folding or ironing to pray for that special one. (How happy and blessed was I to do a load of David’s when he was home for Christmas!!!) …and I don’t know how I would have survived the 70’s and 80’s without Mom’s help! So thanks again from me too, Mom!


  2. Once again, your blog makes me think differently about doing laundry for the girls. This year I had two girls bringing home dirty laundry – however, this year both girls helped with the laundry. Love how the responsibility of laundry makes me see how much the girls are ready to be on their own. I still need to work on Sarah – she still stuffs the washer full. Last year she burnt out the dryer ($375 repair). Love her and her laundry all the same.
    Keep the words of wisdom coming! Love you.


  3. I love your blog! :~) I agree, laundry is an act of love. Madi and Luke growing so very fast. As I stack the piles higher and faster of the clothes that no longer fit them, I can’t help feel the tug at my heart that the time is passing way too fast! I find my self keeping those “special” clothes that will no longer be worn but will always hold many special memories. I pray that each bag full of clothes we donate finds little ones who will wear them and be healthy and Happy! D always give me a hard time over how I fold the laundry (in a good way). In college I worked
    in a clothing store and to this day I still fold the laundry as if it going onto a display shelf! l.o.l.. Glad to hear you are doing well the new year! :~)


  4. Just reading this now and it is perfect timing with my son and two grandsons having moved in with us. I love doing their laundry. My son has a hard time trusting that it’s really OK because as a new single Dad, he wants to be able to do it all by himself. He thanks me constantly! For me, I remember how much relief it would have been if someone, ANYONE, would have helped me with laundry, or anything, while I was raising him by myself! Besides also loving that laundry smell, I like seeing how the boys are growing, appreciating new school clothes in new sizes, etc. Sometimes, it really is the little things but right now, for my son, everything seems huge!

    I really must tell him…………

  5. How wonderful that you can take care of him again in this way. Often we have to understand that it isn’t always the big gestures that mean something but that the small services we do for people every day is what brings grace into our lives, and into their lives!
