The new kitchen counter tops are in; the appliances are working after several false starts and installations; I’m planning on some different accessories and paintings. We also had to do some kitchen repair at our lake house, which I haven’t seen yet. We don’t have a dishwasher there, and we enjoy the time we spend doing dishes together (my husband likes to wash). And although I certainly didn’t appreciate doing dishes with my Mom when I was a child (a rotated task for 3 daughters), I look back on that time fondly now and the talks we had. Now what? Perhaps some prayer and praise while cleaning up?
