Why is that as soon as you think you have two minutes to look through Ravelry, the washing machine decides to pop a hose and dump the whole washing load of water on the floor?!
But I thought to myself, do not get cross - things happen. The way I react to situations like this is the way my children will learn to react. For this reason, I am really trying to work on my positivity and cultivate a meek and gentle spirit.
So I calmly started to sweep the water out the door. I cannot believe how much water comes out of a load of washing!
I am trying to put love into every action and every word, even on those bad days when nothing goes right and I am so tempted to be cranky. I think of 1 Corinthians 10:13 and know that God is right there with me, even in the little everyday problems.
And the silver lining? I have been looking at the laundry floor for a few days, thinking it needing a clean. Job done!
And I have now discovered what a blessing it is that we have an outside laundry.
