Today I cleaned the toilet bowl in my bathroom and scrubbed out my shower. I think once every three years is often enough to scrub out my shower. The toilet bowl gets cleaned at least once a week.
Well, okay, at least once a month. Or maybe twice a month.
Today was the day.
Did the Proverbs 31 woman have to clean toilet bowls?
I am not a Proverbs 31 woman. I wake up early. But I don’t make bread at 4:00 in the morning, I write.
And I haven’t considered a field to buy or made my children clothes. My children wash their own clothes and are responsible to keep their own rooms clean or to keep their bedroom door shut.
Sometimes I cook, but usually we eat sandwiches or soup. I like to make a big batch of something and then feed the family leftovers all week. We eat a lot of frozen pizza and ready-made frozen meatballs. I prefer canned sardines and steamed peas.
I could be considered a Proverbs 31 woman as I do want to bring my husband good and not harm and I do work vigorously when I check my status updates on facebook every ten minutes.
I also don’t eat the bread of idleness because I don’t eat wheat and I am always cleaning the seven litter boxes. So maybe I am a Proverbs 31 woman. I don’t sell garments but I will sell my book this summer.
But my children don’t call me blessed, they call me Mama. My husband loves it when I wash his laundry, but I stopped doing it this summer. After twenty-three years of washing his clothes I decided to trade mowing the lawn for doing his laundry.
If I could qualify based on loving God and cleaning toilets, than I am a Proverbs 31 woman.
And who wouldn’t want to be her, she gets to wear purple all the time.
Do you think the Proverbs 31 woman had to clean toilet bowls? Please tell me in the comments. I want to know what you think. I’ll bet she had her maidservants clean the bathrooms. Or maybe they didn’t have toilets. Toilet paper wouldn’t be invented for another 1000 years.
