Today I am grateful for my 12 year old’s serving heart.
All Most of the time, she is only too pleased to help. Just yesterday, she cleaned and tidied the kitchen till it sparkled, without being asked.
And today, while I was working and she wandered into the office, bored, I flippantly said that she could write the week’s menu and shopping list if she needed something to do. The next time she came in, she was holding a completed menu and asking what ingredients were needed for the meals she’d planned out.
She thrives on being organised (she didn’t get that from me) and absolutely loves being given a job to do and finishing it. Today, while I was feeling annoyed at being back at my desk, her generosity and willingness to help with something that she knew I needed to have done lifted my spirits and brightened my day.
She’s a treasure 🙂
