Mundane Chores

“Look at mundane chores as opportunities for silent reflection and gratitude.” When I read this week’s matchstick suggestion, I began to categorize which chores might be more important and which mundane. When I am cooking would be a good time to concentrate on what I’m doing. Setting my house on fire or flooding it wouldn’t be good news. No skipped ingredients or burnt or boiled-over pots for me. Making my bed, unloading the dishwasher or folding clothes from the dryer could be considered mundane, I guess. I can’t do much damage doing those chores. I know I’m overthinking this. Silent reflection and gratitude to God are what make up my day—every day.  I live alone. I talk to God all day, thanking him for family, friends, church, health, roof over my head, food in my refrigerator and clothes on my back. Thank you, Lord! I am richly blessed. (I might add, in summertime Texas I thank God everyday for air conditioning!)
