What do people thank you for?
Gosh! I have never really thought about it so I’m not quite sure. Lol!
Seriously, being a stay at home mom, I don’t actually mingle with a lot of other people other than my family, close relatives and a few friends. I just do things that I normally do from day to day. Do I get thanked a lot? If I really think about it, I guess I do. Maybe not by a lot of different people but by my own family, usually by my husband and kids. What’s sad about it though is the fact that I let myself get too caught up in my daily routine of mostly not so important things that I fail to stop and return the courtesy to them who took the time to thank me for something I did. No wonder I had tough time coming up with an answer to this simple question. ?
So, thinking about it, my family thanked me everyday for all the things I do for them. From cooking, to doing laundry, to shopping, to cleaning the house, and managing finances, to homeschooling, to reading stories and playing and dancing with the kids. Almost everything I do at home, they thanked me for. Mostly by my husband because my kids are still young, so they usually say thank you when they get reminded. Lol! But! But when they actually say it without anyone reminding them, let me tell you, It feels amazing! Right there, they let me know that I’m doing something right! And with this realization, I will try my very best to slow down and let them know that I appreciate them taking the time to say thank you.
I know my life at the moment is centered around my family, but I also know deep down that someday I want to be a part of a much bigger world, helping wherever and whenever I can.
