Why cleaning a toilet assists in achieving your greatness.

Dan asked today why he and his brothers have to do so many jobs around the house.

Previously I would have felt so guilty about it and answered meekly with apologies for the situation.

Today I see how I have grown and how he is maturing.

The answer…because Mum and Dad are caring a lot for Abbey. But we want the best for you and your brothers, like attending Scouts, music and travelling. To do that, we need help.

It’s not a lesson in we must all do jobs that we dislike.

It’s a lesson in helping one another to achieve our greatness. Even if it means cleaning a toilet.

His response was fabulous.

He listened, I saw the brain cogs turning over, then acceptance. And the conversation turned to burping jokes.
