My friend, Erin, and I have been struggling lately with feeling invisible to our families. We spend hours each day cleaning up after our kids, our husbands, and of course ourselves, but no one ever sees. I often have the thought that I should just not pick anything up and let my family get lost in the piles of their own junk. No, that won’t work. I would go insane before any of them would even notice the piles forming. Maybe I should throw a fit until everyone thanks me for all the hard work I do and recognizes the countless hours I spend behind the scenes. No, that’s not the example I want to set for my kids, nor do I want my husband to think that’s what he should do (I know I don’t thank him enough for all he does at work every day.) What’s the solution? Is there an answer? God brought me this video several years ago at the exact moment I needed it. I saw it as I was going through some old blog posts yesterday and it spoke to me just as loudly as it had the first time I watched it. Maybe it will speak some truth to you today also.
