You Think You Can Do It Yourself
When I was growing up, Saturday mornings were all about chores and cartoons. Now, Saturday mornings for kids are usually about sports activities and hanging out with friends. Children should have more time to do childlike things (like those weekend sports and friend activities), but let’s not forget to teach them to value that time. If you have a professional servicing your home, please make sure that your children realize that those weekend moments are a little more available because chores are complete first.
These days most of us really don’t have time to clean our own house. Even if we make time to do so, it wears us out to the point that we don’t want to enjoy the rest of the day because we are so tired.
Someone Else Is Cleaning Your Mess…So Why Not Thank Them?
People Work Harder When They Feel Appreciated
This can apply to more than housekeepers, too! Thank people that make a difference in your life more often than just on Thanksgiving. The stores don’t even give Thanksgiving the recognition in decorations anymore. I feel it is a holiday that gets skipped so everyone can go Black Friday shopping or decorate their homes for Christmas.
Please stop and say thank you, show appreciation, and show you care more often than once a year. Sometimes the words, “Thank you” with an action can make someone’s day. It’s just nice to be nice!
