Well, it’s Monday.
I love laundry…but the laundry overflows (yes, even at Mama Laundry’s house!) every single Monday morning. It can get old. And overwhelming.
And some Mondays I’m a little more tired than usual and I need some encouragement. A little inspiration to get moving on rolling the laundry.
So I created my little Laundry Bulletin Board:
It is the home to many things: extra button packets, my quickie stain removal guide, receipts that we need to keep, my son’s famous index card drawings that always end up in his pockets.
But it is also home to a few very important reminders: pictures of my husband and my kiddos and also one of my favorite Bible verses.
Some days I need to see a picture of my lovelies so I can remember why I am trying to work through this mountain of laundry craziness. I need to see their sweet, smiling faces and remember that it is an enormous privilege to provide their basic needs. I need to see my husband’s face because it triggers me to think about how thrilled he is when he sees all of his white t-shirts clean in the drawer and declares that the “Laundry Fairy” has been.
And my Bible verse is there to remind me that the Lord cares for me in all of my struggles, even in something as mundane and ‘every day’ as laundry. I’m so grateful He’s interested in everything I do, whether it is something grandiose or just another daily chore.
We all need a little pick-me-up from time to time. A little inspiration to keep on keeping on. I use my bulletin board as a great reminder of how clean clothes can bless my family.
Do you ever need a little laundry inspriration? What do you do or use?
