How many times do we do these tasks – shop for groceries, cook dinner, feed the pet, fold laundry? These todos are recurring; they come back up for us to attend to again and again. I’m sure I am not alone in saying that at times I have been frustrated by having to deal with them. But I want to take a moment to try and look at them differently. Perhaps these ordinary tasks serve as reminders of the many blessings in our lives. For some of us, we have the resources to purchase and prepare food on a daily basis. We may have pets in our lives that bring us joy. We might have an abundance of clothing to wear. There are those who cannot say the same.
So, are they ordinary tasks or reminders of our blessings?
