Inner Grumbling

March 23, 2015

Earlier this morning, I began to tidy up our home, knowing that, we were going to have a visitor stop by later in the day. We have four cats and live in a small home and so we have resorted to keeping the cat litter box out in the garage. Therefore a door is left open, so they can get in and out easily. Most days there is cat litter residue, fur, cat kibble to be found on the floor and if they venture outside to the back yard, they will often return with either wet or muddy paws. Yes, they leave small paw prints but with when they dry, there are a lot of little prints to clean up after. They haven’t figured out that they can wipe their little paws on the small rug by the door.  As I tugged on our heavy vacuum cleaner,  I began grumbling within and fretting about the chore ahead of me. The more I grumbled, all of a sudden I heard, “a dirty floor is the least of your problems.” I was gently reminded that I was making a mountain out of a mole hill attitude.

    It’s so easy for me to go down the grumbling trail and so nice to get knocked off that trail!

    I can identify with the attitude–that turned into my devotion writing last week. God loves us too much to leave us as we are.

    It’s kind of funny how we all worry about what a visitor will think and in most cases the visitor is much more interested in our company. 🙂

    Oh I’m with you. I adore cats they can do absolutely no wrong. I have a diabetic old kitty who needs loads of love and care. Btw, you are allowed to grumble – it is just so good when we stop 🙂
