The Magic Kitchen Rug
Almost every day, I stand on my kitchen rug, at the sink, and do a pile of dirty dishes. Those who know me, know that I don't normally enjoy this task. However, here and there, while scrubbing off spaghetti sauce and scraping dried cheese, I have a moment when my thoughts flow freely and I am able to reflect on life.
My husband loves the show Aladdin and for some reason yesterday morning at the sink, that is what I was thinking about. I turned on the song "A Whole New World" and as I listened to the words, I couldn't help but think of how it related a little bit to Motherhood. Cheese, soooo cheesy, I know! But this part... "A hundred thousand things to see! ...Hold your breath, it gets better." It reminds me of the advice I hear all the time... "Enjoy it because it goes by so fast!" (maybe because I need to hear it?)
Standing on that little kitchen rug, my eyes where opened to a "new fantastic point of view", and I am reminded what a magical ride a mother and wife's life can be.
Yes! I am one of those kids who grew up watching Disney Movies...and I'm proud of it!
