Good timing for gratitude

Maybe it's fitting that I have a lesson in gratitude the week before Thanksgiving. Tonight I find myself exceedingly grateful for the loads of laundry that I washed, folded and put away today.

Our washing machine up and quit several days ago and I had thought I'd be at the laundr-o-mat today doing loads of laundry. But no, I got to leisurely put them through cycles then fold them on my bed while I watched the news.

Thanks must go to my fabulous husband who managed to diagnose the problem and fix it for $30 instead of the $100's we were dreading having to spend on a new machine!

I just don't hear myself saying it often, so listen up...hurray for laundry!

Now, I find myself walking around my house feeling grateful for every appliance that makes my life easier (and hoping nothing else brakes!)

Yay for working appliances!

Yay! We had to replace our washer a year ago (three weeks without a machine...insert scream here). About three weeks ago, five days before our warantee was up, it broke. Thank goodness we weren't past the warantee! I love washing machines.....
