I need every little bit of inspiration to do dishes and return, again and again to the kitchen: fix breakfast, fix snacks, feed cats, do dishes, fix snacks, get lunch, etc.... A while back I found this picture of my mom giving me a bath in the sink. It was just what the kitchen Goddess ordered. It makes me feel connected to my mom, though she passed nearly forty years ago, and it makes me feel connected to my son, knowing as I do that we both have sink baths in common. The kitty was a gift from my sister-in-law. And the little vase with the heart that says True Love? A Valentine's gift from my husband. You bet it's true love - I'm doing the dishes! That mundane task is a little easier, a little more soulful now.
