I so understand the prompt challenge that “dishes don’t do themselves”.  There are a myriad of jobs to do daily that won’t do themselves.  But… as one who has a very persnickety dishwasher, I want to encourage those of you who do have a reliable dishwasher, to be very thankful because, dishes do (pretty much) do themselves!  I have had weeks of having to troubleshoot things with ours and am relieved EVERY time that I open the dishwasher to find clean dishes.  Talk about being thankful for little things!  I’m so there…especially when it comes to my dishes doing themselves in our persnickety dishwasher.  (And I’m working on the being thankful in all things when I’m hand washing a whole load of dirty dishes!)

Counting Blessings,


“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving  let your requests be made known to God.”  Philippians 4:6
