In fact, the dishes have overflowed onto the counter and even onto the stove!
No matter how hard I try, no matter how many dishes I wash, there are always more dirty dishes.
I get frustrated. I cry. Sometimes I just want to throw all the dishes away and eat off paper plates for the rest of my life.
That's when I stop, take a breath and say to myself "Do not be upset that I have dishes to wash. Be happy that I have food to eat."
Sometimes I just need to remind myself that I am really blessed.
