I got this in the mail today and it made me mad!!! Then sad. Its an advertisement for having someone else come in and clean your home. The cover (as you can see) shows the parents reading to their children instead of cleaning... I guess.
 Why does this make me mad? I don't exactly know why... I can tell you what it does NOT invoke and that is jealousy. 
 I find it a privilege to clean my home. Yes I don't always do it as best as I should but its not for lack of trying. I have 6 other people running around scattering crumbs. But taking time to wipe and clean also is a time I reflect and am thankful for the beautiful home I have. The pride in my home grows as I scrub and clean and care for my family... and making it sparkle is a part of that. Im not willing to lose that connection to my home and hand it over to someone else.No. I don't think that day will ever come.
 So I guess this makes me sad because most people won't understand what Im trying to say... Yes, cleaning might be a chore sometimes but when flipped around it is such a blessing. Try it!

  1. I completely agree with you! first of all, I would be uncomfortable having someone clean up after me and my family..I can't say why exactly...I have nothing to hide, but I just wouldn't want them to do that. Second, my kids HELP me clean and LEARN how to clean by HELPING.
