Privileged to gather his socks. {Five Minute Friday}

Laundry is one of my least favorite things to do. Gathering and sorting. Sorting and gathering. Lights. Darks. Whites. And socks. Let’s not forget those pesky things. I am not sure what it is, but every time I do the laundry one of those sneaky little things seems to disappear into the realm of the unknown. Give Thanks. Thessalonians 518Not too long ago I was gathering my husband’s socks off of the bathroom floor. With every sock I picked up I got more and more frustrated. I couldn’t understand what was so hard about putting them in the laundry basket. As I put the pile of socks in the basket I felt God gently whisper to my soul, “Kelly, there are women out there who would love nothing more than to have a husband to pick up after. Quit griping about his socks and be thankful.” Lesson learned, God. Lesson learned! Now, every time I pick up my husband’s socks off the floor I am reminded to be thankful for my husband and all he does for me. I feel privileged to gather his socks.

  • Kelly,
    What an encouraging Word!!
    I have had. Those same thoughts as I have picked up socks!
    Thank you for sharing!
    Love you.

  • Such a sweet reminder. Oh man though, socks are my nemesis too. Dishes are my least favorite chore but socks come in a close second and especially picking them up.

    One day I got so mad I asked my husband. “Why am I always finding your socks all over? It’s as if you wear more than one pair a day! And I am tired of collecting them.”

    He goes, “Oh, that’s where they go. I usually set them aside to decide if they can be worn again.”

    Hahahah, WORN AGAIN!?! Guys are so strange. We laughed and settled it there when I said, “For the record, socks can NEVER be worn again.”

    I have a sock post at my blog I think. Now I’m gonna have to go find that goofy piece of nonsense I wrote in some tiffy. 😉

    Nice getting to know you, FMF neighbor.

    • Thanks Jesse. You are so right, socks should never be worn again. When find that post let me know. I would like to read it. Nice getting to know you too. 🙂

  • This ties in with my bible study today. We were focusing on marriage this past week. It’s amazing how God zings us to get us back on track. Several of us mentioned keeping our house more tidy as respect to our spouse.

  • You know how I feel! 😄 Be blessed in all, 😊
