One of my favorite things about our house is the view from the kitchen window. I don't mind washing dishes at all when it means I can stare at our beautiful world while my hands are busy in the soapy water.
This was, in fact, on my list of "things I'm grateful for" as we went around the Thanksgiving dinner table and shared our thoughts with each other.
However, I think I'd trade my beautiful view of plants and birds for the view that greeted me from Megan's kitchen window as I washed Thanksgiving dinner dishes any day. People are so much more important than things!
A giant leaf pile, even if it is brown and gray, is a lot more fun than plain boring green grass!!
