Yesterday I had a friend visiting.  I mentioned to her that I was looking at finding someone to pay to come in and wash all the baseboards/air vents/light fittings and switches/fan blades etc.  They have just been bothering me and I feel like I'm not getting to everything that needs to be done, KWIM?


Anyway, this dh insists that we go out for the day and I was really annoyed as I was looking forward to a quiet day at home.   Got home late this afternoon to a spotless house!   My friend and another friend came over did everything I was moaning about yesterday AND cleaned the bathrooms, kitchen, vacuumed, cleaned the laundry, etc.   


I am beyond blessed!  Seriously, what a wonderfully kind thing to do!

So nice to think that there are people out there like that. I'm feeling very cynical these days so it is nice to read something like this.

That is awesome!! I have been finding out that sometimes all you need to do is ask. I know I am always looking for opportunities to help people because I enjoy it. I don't have any close friends but I have been going through some really hard things and just by posting on Facebook and asking for help I have been given so much. I hurt my back a while back and 2 people stepped up to drive me around because I couldn't. My doula has given me all her baby clothes, diapers, a highchair, a bouncy seat, and some diapers. Other friends have given me lots of produce from their gardens. All things I have been stressing about because I have not had income for 3 months now. In the past I would have turned it all down due to pride but now I humbly receive and look for my chance to pay it forward.
