LITTLE THINGS (for WPC: Achievement)

Woods
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 ourย  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.

Walk
There. I got a little closer. These folks walk too fast for my liking. ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you for coming by.ย  Happy blessed weekend to you. ๐Ÿ™‚
