LITTLE THINGS (for WPC: Achievement)

On Labor Day, my family and I visited the Freetown-Fall River State Forest. We walked the trail around the forest. Since I am just about the most reluctant walker in the whole wide world :-), I consider it a big achievement to be able to walk on this path and enjoy some family time. Beyond that, I consider loving and being loved by the members of this family (whose figures disappear around the bend) my greatest achievement of all.


I wash the dishes
prepare our food
do the laundry
fold our  clothes
scrub the toilets
polish the floor
kiss my husband
before he heads out the door

I change diapers
kiss my children’s wounds
teach them their ABCs
tell them to be good
I play their games
hug them tight
tuck them into bed
after prayers at night

When the house is quiet
I rest my weary feet
after I look at the faces
smiling as they fall asleep.
My life is hidden
in the little things
yet, to love and be loved
makes all the difference.

There. I got a little closer. These folks walk too fast for my liking. 🙂

Thank you for coming by.  Happy blessed weekend to you. 🙂

  1. What a lovely walk that must have been Imelda. Looks like everyone had lots of fun. Beautiful photos of a lovely time. Love your poem hon. So true and so beautiful! 😀 ♥

  2. What a love-filled poem. So upbeat and positive, and of course, well-written as usual 🙂 There’s nothing like helping others and seeing them smile and love you back ❤
