Happy Thankful Thursday! Today’s post was inspired once again by Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop.
Remember those Sarcastic Thank You’s??? Well, here are a few real thank you cards I’d like to send out….
I know I don’t always show you the respect you deserve… Let’s face it, laundry is NOT my favorite chore. But I want to take this opportunity to thank you.
Thank you for allowing me clean the spilled food from my children’s clothing with considerable less work and effort than my grandmother had to put in to using her wash and ringer. Or, for that matter, the mothers before her who would have had to use a scrubbing board.
Thank you for saving important stuffed animals that have gotten in the line of fire of a sick child, and for allowing me to stuff you full of puked on blankets, towels, and clothes, keeping me from having to clean these items by hand. (Because, honestly, I think quite a bit of it would make it to the trash otherwise….)
How did we ever live without you, beloved kitchen appliance?
Instead of having to wait for a kettle of water to boil on the stove each morning, you heat my coffee mug of water in just one minute!
Thank you for allowing me to get that caffeine rush in the morning that much quicker. You truly help me to be a better mommy — one who is more awake and able to deal with the energetic little ones who greet me each morning.
I haven’t forgotten you!
Thank you for taking all those important messages I might have otherwise missed when out of the house.
Better yet, thank you for taking all those unwanted messages and phone calls from 1-800 numbers when I check caller-ID and decide not to answer the phone. (Okay, I admit it, sometimes I let you get calls from places other than 1-800 numbers that I just don’t feel like dealing with at the time….)
What every day item would you send a thank you card to?
