Living an Attitude of Gratitude

Day 1,007

Today I am thankful:

For our washer and dryer. I still remember what a hassle it was to go to the laundromat or wash everything by hand.

For our dishwasher. It has a sanitize option, which is very important to me right now.

For chunky tomato bisque.

  1. It has been over twenty years since I’ve had to go to a laundromat, but oh how I remember it…no car, I only weighed 98 pounds at the time, I suffered from chronic pain and fatigue back then, having to lug that bag of laundry several blocks to the laundromat. Horrible. I too am grateful for our washer and dryer!

  2. Yuck! I never had to do that. I remember my Mom using one of those old wringer washing machines, and then the utter joy when we got our first automatic washing machine.

  3. Oh my gosh, the laundromat stories! I was so not crazy about the place that once when I was going to visit my mother in Phoenix, I saved up my laundry, put it in the back seat of my 1969 VW bug and drove from Los Angeles to Phoenix…where mama said, pointing toward her Maytag: “go ahead kid, knock yourself out.” I drove back with clean laundry folded, with the help of my mother, stuffed into pillow cases. What some people won’t do to get out of doing laundry at the laundromat!

  4. On the other hand, after Hurricane Ike, one of the greatest blessings in the world was the Tide Corporation showing up with their mobile laundromats. They were like big semi trucks,and they parked a couple of them in the Target parking lot down the street from me. Really clean clothes were such a blessing for so many people who had no electricity or running water — or houses, for that matter!
