a clean and dry blankie…

One of the many things I enjoy about my nieces and nephews is how well quickly they respond when I ask them to give me a hand.

Today was no exception…

I asked Peter to help me out by running downstairs and putting Johanna’s blanket in the dryer. He jumped right to it and was down and back up in no time….

I was so pleased by his helpful spirit. I know (and Peter knows) how important it is to have a clean and dry blanket before nap time…

As we were walking out of the house, I mentioned to Peter how quiet their dryer is. To which he responded, “I didn’t turn the dryer on, I don’t know how to do that, but Aunt Trish, I did put the blanket in the dryer like you asked!”

I had to smile as I ran back in and went downstairs to turn on the dryer.

I am keenly aware in a new way today, that sometimes I ask for things without asking clearly for my desired outcome.  I am thankful for the fun and simple way I was reminded of this….

I hope you are able to ask for what you need each day and that your requests will be met with the cheerful attitude (and honesty) that Peter offered me!
