Why make the bed?

"Why do I need to make my bed if it's just going to get messed up again?"
The child whines.

Sometimes I wonder and whine, too.

Why do we need to do any of this, really?

Why should I wash the windows any time between now and when the children are grown? Nobody is going to notice, and they are going to look just as bad tomorrow whether I do it or not.

Our kids ask these questions of us.
We ask them of ourselves.

How often we just keep on plowing through, for who-knows-why.
Today- stop for a second, please.

Consider this answer.
