THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Wedding anniversaries matter. They’re a memento of a life shared.
This son and his wife are soon expecting their sixth child and my 22nd grandchild and have many special reasons to be celebrating their anniversary today. What a lovely family they have.
We talk about how important our family is, but don't set aside a special day each year to celebrate it in a special way. It seems the natural day for this would be one’s wedding anniversary, the founding of our family. I think it will be really neat to set aside our wedding anniversary each year, at least in part, as a family affair.
Our children are usually aware of our anniversaries, and they are watching. Couples who honor their marriage and God are showing their children that their home is a secure place to be. They can count on them. There is a quote that says the best thing a man can do for his children is to love their mom and I know this to be true.
On my trivia calendar today it says it is No Dirty Dishes Day. It’s a reprieve from the daily pile of dishes to wash and dry. Day after day, we do the daily chore of washing and drying dishes, then put them away in various cabinets and drawers. We perform this task after each and every meal, and often after snacks. Even putting them in and out of the dishwasher and running it, can be a chore.
We deserve a break from this routine. And, today is that day. The objective of this day is to have no dirty dishes. It is not intended to pile them up until tomorrow.
I can think of two ways to avoid dirty dishes today:
1. Use disposable plates, cups and silverware for all meals and snacks.
2. Take the family out to eat . Then for snack, go out for ice cream! A great idea for DS#3 and his family today!
It is recommend that we do not pile up the dishes to do tomorrow. This defeats the purpose of this very special day.
I hope you all have a great start to this new week! Happy Monday !

ADVICE FOR TODAY
Chance cannot change love, nor time impair, for love is more than a feeling. Love is a decision, a commitment to care forever.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
