Today I am going to tell you something that I, and many other people love about me. I can’t believe it has taken me so long to write about it, because honestly, I’m very proud that this is a personality trait of mine.
I love lists! I love organising thing! And I love cleaning.
I’m a great cleaner and organiser, I have been a bridesmaid 6 times and for 3 of those weddings I really got to use those skills to bless the Bride and Groom and help them have the day they wanted. I can use it to organise holidays, or sort out bedrooms. I especially love it when I know other people are going to get something out of it. If I can bless someone with my anal retentiveness then that is a win for me.
I remember being the last of 4 people at one of these weddings, waiting for our lift to arrive and just feeling so happy that I had spent a week of my life blessing two people that I cared about. I could see how much they enjoyed their day and the relief of knowing that they didn’t have to worry because myself, and the other bridesmaids, were on hand to do what needed to be done.
When I go home to the parents I do my best to do some deep cleaning or one room for my mum so she doesn’t have too, I have a habit at turning up to parties early to help set up and do what needs to be done.
I just really love it. Not because I get thanks and praise, but because I know it is something I can do, and I can do it well.
