Thank God for dirty dishes;
They have a tale to tell.
While other folk go hungry,
We're eating very well.
With home and health and happiness,

For by this stack of evidence,
God's very good to us.

I just wanted to thank you for your lovely site. Your articles are very pleasant to read and keep me from feminist influence.

I love your site! I come and read it as much as I can. I have it added to my favorites. I wrote this quote down about the dirty dishes and stuck it on the wall above my sink full of dirty dishes!

Dear Lady Lydia,

Your "dirty dishes" poem is one my dear grandmother copied down by hand on an index card and sent in a letter to me in my earlier years of marriage. I have framed it and it hangs in my kitchen, above an old hand beater she used (and let me use as a little girl), to remember the attitude and see the precious writing of my sweet grandmother, who is now with the Lord. She was a wonderful model of the poem's attitude too!
