My dishwasher runs sometimes twice a day. I don't know what I'd do without it (Yes, I do. I'd be washing 5 sink's worth of dishes by hand everyday instead of my usual 2). I feel grateful to have one, almost spoiled; many women in this country and around the world go without.
Maybe it's a silly thing to feel blessed by, but I try to thank God for all my blessings. When life seems to take a wrong turn and I just can't get a handle on my day, I look at my life through a magnifying glass to see what all I have to be thankful for.
A Dishwasher Haiku:
Always ready to assist
Never a complaint
