My idea of superwoman is someone who scrubs her own floors.
Many moons ago, I worked a t Chicago style pizza joint to learn the art of a darn good pizza. After a long day of dough making and sauce stirring my favorite thing to do was sweep the corn meal off the floor. We used cornmeal to keep the pizzas from sticking in the pizza oven.
Every day the floor was heavily dusted with the meal and every day I had the satisfaction of sweeping it clean. There was just something so soothing about that cornmeal on the floor. It was a representation of all that hard work feeding hungry folk and getting ready for a new day.
Today, every time I sweep the kitchen floor it takes me back to that time in my life of cornmeal, pizzas and a carefree existence. But there were no silly giggles to distract me in the background or random cheerios stuck to the floor for me to chisel away. My current sweeping days are truly the happiest days of my life.
