House Proud

A dear friend of mine will tell you that she is 'house proud' and I understand that very well because of my mother.  She scrubbed and cleaned well into the night to make sure that everything was spotless.  It always bothered her that even though I like to keep a tidy and clean home, I didn't share her enthusiasm for the serious jobs like washing walls and hand scrubbing floors.

Every year when it is time for spring cleaning I think of my mother and smile knowing that she would be happy to see that she taught me well and that I can also be house proud even if it is only on occasion.
