I think today was just a breaking point.
Had to juggle between online schooling, shopping & cooking.
Normally I do the shopping on Wednesday in order to be ready for the cooking on Thursday. But for some gluey reason (read yesterday’s post if you don’t understand what I’m talking about) that didn’t happen, so I had to do it all together on the same day.
But sometimes it seems that no one is paying attention to what I’m doing around the house until there’s nothing to eat in the fridge, or until there are no snacks in the cupboard or even sometimes until they don’t have undies to wear…
Obviously we are the see-through-people… like ghosts, just in the real world. People whom no one is paying attention to.
Like the people who clean the street, or the mailman. Unfortunately. As long as they are doing their job, no one is paying attention. Over time I learned to acknowledge their work, smile, have a small talk and even thank them although it’s their ‘job’.
It’s like when I went shopping today I saw a street cleaner who cleaned an illegal graffiti near my parking lot. I thanked him not just because the wall is much nicer without
graffiti, but mainly because his work needs to be acknowledged and he needs to be seen.
I wish more people would pay attention to the people behind the scenes…
Everyone wants to feel appreciated From time to time.
Even us, mums.
(And not just on mother’s day)
