Years ago, I was having a presidency meeting at my house and I apologized for my dishwasher running because it was making some noise and we had to talk over it. My friend said that she loved the sound of appliances because that meant that something else is doing her work for her. I have thought a lot about that over the years and today something happened that yet reminded me again of what she said. Today is laundry day and at one point I went to go and check the clothes in the dryer only to find out that they were very damp still after I had been drying them for a while. I panicked thinking that my dryer had bit the dust and I would have to take the rest of my clothes to my moms or a laundromat and wait for Jeff to fix my dryer, or worse have to buy a new one...I was hoping to use my tax return for something else! It ended up working and I am not sure what happened, but my blessings today are all of my appliances. I don't have the fanciest or state of the art appliances, but I am lucky to have what I have. My washer and Dryer, the stove, the microwave, the water heater, the refrigerator, and the dishwasher. I am amazed when I hear the sound of these items and how they are helping me so much with the work that I am supposed to be doing. I know that they are a blessing in my life. They save me time, do things more efficiently (better than I could even do sometimes), and work while I am away or sleeping lots of times. Thank heaven for my blessing(s) #6-my appliances.
