6th Grade Angel

Snapper had a swim meet this morning. She had a persistent side cramp (since yesterday afternoon) and swam very poorly. She came home feeling down and discouraged. And then she remembered that the best way to snap yourself out of a funk is to do something for another person. She came to me and said:

Mom, you do so much for me every day and you deserve a rest. Please rest and relax today and leave the house to me.

In the last 2 hours, Snapper has...

  • Cleaned her bedroom
  • Cycled 2 loads of laundry
  • Sorted 6 loads of laundry
  • Folded and put away 2 loads of towels
  • Thoroughly cleaned the kitchen (unloaded and loaded the dishwasher, wiped counters, swept the floor, wiped down appliances and fridge0
  • Vacuumed the living room
  • Wiped down the front bathroom
  • Is helping me with more laundry
Bless you, sweet child. You are such a gift, and your thoughtfulness and servant's heart is greatly appreciated today.
