Today's Tidbit of Helpful Information: Dirty Dishes Poem

This is more thoughtful than helpful.

Picture from allposters
"Thank God for dirty dishes,
They have a tale to tell.
While other folks go hungry,
We're eating very well.

With home and health and happiness,
We shouldn't want to fuss.
For by this stack of evidence,
God's very good to us."

I am in commando declutter mode around here. I have been clipping and saving little bits of helpful information throughout my married life....and that's it. Just saving them. Sometimes they are in my nightstand drawer, a folder, the junk drawer, the cookbook, etc. I know a great idea is to store them in a household binder but I am not even remotely interested in adding ANYTHING else to this house right now. So in an effort to rid my house of these little bits and bobs of paper, I'm going to post them here, like a cork own Pinterest, if you will.


  1. My Mom quoted that to us so many times! Why is it that we are so blessed to have dirty dishes but I still don't like cleaning up?
    Sigh. I'm too spoiled I do believe.

  2. I had to come say too, that my mother quoted this when I was growing up! ;)

    Now, I quote it to my children sometimes too.

    Dirty dishes are a blessing, but they never end sometimes..

  3. Ummmm that ain't our sink?! You doin someone else's dishes?


I love to hear your thoughts and reflections!
