Today I lift some dishes dirty, The bed got made around two-thirty; The diapers soaked a little longer, Their odor grew a little stronger, The crumbs I spilled the day before Were staring at me from the floor; The fingerprints on the wall I guess will still be there next fall; The dirt streaks on the window panes Will still be there next time it rains. "For shame, oh lazy one," you say, "And just what did you do today?" I nursed a baby till she slept; I held a toddler while she wept. I played a game of hide-and-seek. I squeezed a toy so it would squeak; I pulled a sled, I sang a song. I taught a child what's right and wrong. What did I do the whole day through? Not much that shows, I guess it's true. Unless you think that what I've done Might be important to someone With bright blue eyes and soft blonde hair, If that is true, I've done my share.
I was about to start a HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY thread, but this message might as well go here.
I know we have lots of mothers on this board, and I want to say to them: HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!
I don't have a mother anymore and don't have any kids either. My cats did NOT give me breakfast in bed this morning. ;D
The older I get, the more I realize what my mother went through raising us. I appreciate my mother all the more when I realize how difficult it is just to look after myself and be responsible for myself! ;D
I wonder what the Wilsons & Wes are doing today to celebrate their mothers. Being the gentlemen they are, I am certain they are doing something!
