Joy, Gratitude, Service and Gifts

"Maybe dishes make other people joyful. Maybe that's why they think I should be joyful while doing dishes. Hmmm . . . maybe I am OK not being joyful every minute. Maybe this isn't a problem for me. Maybe I don't need someone to tell me it's OK not to be ceaselessly joyful."

Yep, someone actually wrote that on an unschooling list. But luckily, I saved Ren's response!
It's been a while, but that page is all spruced up now and connected to the one below it.

In Friday's chat, the topic turned to older kids jumping up to help bring in groceries and put them away. Then it turned to service, and that idea at a pretty deep level, so I saved all that.

Good URLs, huh? Easy to remember or to guess. This one, not so much. An oldie but goldie I've linked back and forth with the two above.

Cleaned up, and image added to the index page of the chores section:
(That used to be chore without an "s" and I changed it, so if you had it bookmarked or linked anywhere, if the link doesn't work, just add the "s".)
