It’s been sitting in the corner of my room for days, just staring at me. It watches me walk by, trying to ignore it, when I make my bed.

Full of clean laundry, it waits. I hear it whispering at me, whenever I get close enough to touch it.

It’s telling me that I’m a slacker mom. A good mom would have folded these by now. How lazy can you be that you can’t put away a small hamper of clothes.

I shuffled into my room today feeling drained. I’ve been feeling really drained by 3 pm since my surgery. The doctor said my body would still be healing for some time and that a short break should enough to help. I laid across my {made} bed, and pulled my throw blanket over my feet.

From the corner of my room I could hear it.

“You don’t deserve a break woman! Get up, lazy, and fold these clothes! Worthless….”

Know what I did?

I got up. I walked over to the hamper.

I kicked it. I kicked it hard enough to knock some of the clothes onto the floor.

God said I was worthy.

God said I was good {thank you Jesus!}.

God said I could rest.

The laundry is not still there because I am lazy or worthless. It is still in that hamper because every time I tried to head towards my room to fold it, a little person grabbed my hand and said “Play with me Momma”, and I did.

Maybe in the world of Laundry Hampers I am totally and completely worthless.

But in their world, I rock the awesome.
