Watering plants, grocery shopping, dusting/cleaning,doing laundry, cooking, paying bills,etc+ALL THAT JAZZ=ADULTING!
This morning nostalgia hit while I was #handwashing
some clothes. I was taught to wash by hand at 12, after my father passed in #Haiti
SO many of my "adulting" skills were acquired through observing the INCREDIBLE individuals who worked for THE family. MOST called them "maids", BUT to me, they were "family"; ABOVE blood relations! I am WHO I am today BECAUSE people LESS fortunate than moi LOVED on, BELIEVED in, CARED for and INSTILLED values in ME!
THEY owed me NOTHING but gave me EVERYTHING!
God MAY not give you what you "think" you #WANT
, but #trustandbelieve
HE WILL GIVE you what you #NEED
... I needed and wanted THEM😍
It made me smile to wash my clothes the #way
I was taught!
