Little Laundry Lady

It’s been said that most children have the spirit of inquiry spanked out of them before they enter school. Not so with Tina. The spirit of inquiry lives on, and so does her initiative.

At a year and a half, she’s Mommy’s little helper. When Mommy washes the floor, she gets her baby wipes and washes the floor too.

But what if Mommy’s not doing her job? Surely the clean socks on the shelf need re-washing. Hmm . . . what does Mommy use? Oh yes—dry cat food.  Mix with water, add socks and scrub till clean.

I love how Tina’s mom, Maria, doesn’t get after her for things done in innocence.

Perhaps God has taught Maria to look on the heart, as He does.

“ . . . man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.”  I Samuel 16:7

  1. Thank you, Doug. I think placing ads on your site and donating the earnings is a good idea; you might even want to contact the charity or charities you want to support and get a “Donate here” button on your blog. That way people who are moved by your story (and there are many, judging by the comments!) could donate right away.
