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