Adopt an Apron Attitude

 

Adopt an Apron Attitude - Apron Strings & other things

The days are full to overflowing. There are meals to fix, lessons to teach, noses to wipe. The phone rings, the door bell chimes. Bedtime stories and supper dishes, Notes to mail and appointments to make. It makes a woman want to run and hide just thinking of it all. But she has a choice. She can give in to the whoa-is-me attitude or adopt an apron attitude.

What’s an apron attitude, you ask? It is an attitude you choose put on, like you put on your apron. A new day awaits, with dirty work ahead, so you grab your apron off the peg, slip it over your head and tie it securely round your waist. You are ready to get down to business. Funny thing, how that apron changes the attitude. That little bit of fabric is a reminder to myself and to everyone around that Mama means business. And like Cinderella, that woman in her apron uniform can set to her work with a cheerful heart, blessing and serving those in her household, even when they don’t deserve it. Or she can continue in a grumpy disposition, bringing everyone down with her.

Will you join me today, in adopting a cheerful attitude? It will benefit everyone you meet today, including your family and yourself!

  1. Wonderful post! It makes me think I should write “Ephesians 4:22-24” on the inside of each apron. Then as I put it on I can be reminded to put off all my ugly attitudes and inward focus and as I put on my apron I can start with a new more righteous and holy attitude. Thank you for sharing this idea of an apron attitude!

    • Thank you, Lacey ๐Ÿ™‚ I love it when you stop by and share – your comments always encourage me! I love the idea of hiding away a scripture in our aprons – and the reminder to “put off the old man (or old attitude) and put on the new (apron attitude)” is perfect!

  2. How eloquently written. This is a really wonderful reminder. We do have a choice and our moods do effect others, good or bad.

    • aww, thank you Amanda, for you kind words. Yes, whether or not we are wearing an apron, we always have a choice. I’m so thankful for a new day in which to make those choices! Blessings ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. This is a great idea. I hadn’t thought of how it changes my attitude. I really do need a new apron. I’ve worn all but one out!
