Do you sometimes feel like a slave when doing the laundry, ironing clothes, washing the dishes, etc?

The other night, my heart just exploded unexpectedly. “I am a wife. I am not a slave. This is not what I signed up for.” I started pouring out my heart to my husband. I don’t know. I just got tired of doing household chores that it’s driving me insane.
Well, God knows exactly what I was feeling… Look at what God told me through our daily devotion.
When people serve others because they are forced to do so, they lose the freedom to serve genuinely. Serving our spouse is a way of practicing the teachings of Jesus. Jesus said that every time we serve one of His creatures, we are serving Him.
That last line sent me back to my senses. Right. Whenever I serve my husband, I am also serving the Lord. So the following day, I spent the entire morning doing the laundry and cleaning up the house – this time with a joyful spirit. I reminded myself that whatever I do, I am doing it unto the Lord!
Do you cheerfully do household chores?
