Why I Love My Mom
from Loreth and if you haven't read her books, you should :)
Mom and Dad were watching TV when Mom said,
"I'm tired, and it's getting late. I think I'll go to bed."
She went to the kitchen to make sandwiches
for the next day's lunches. Rinsed out the popcorn
bowls, took meat out of the freezer for supper the
following evening, checked the cereal box levels, filled the
sugar container, put spoons and bowls on the table and
started the coffee pot for brewing the next morning.
She then put some wet clothes in the dryer,
put a load of clothes into the wash, ironed a shirt and
secured a loose button.
She picked up the game pieces left on the
table and put the telephone book back into the drawer.
She watered the plants, emptied a wastebasket and hung up a towel to dry.
She yawned and stretched and headed for the bedroom.
She stopped by the desk and wrot e a note to
the teacher, counted out some cash for the field trip,
and pulled a textbook out from hiding under the chair.
She signed a birthday card for a friend,
addressed and stamped the envelope and wrote a quick note
for the grocery store. She put both near her purse.
Mom then washed her face with 3 in 1 cleanser, put on her
Night Solution & age fighting moisturizer, brushed and
flossed her teeth and filed her nails.
Dad called out, "I thought you were going to bed."
"I'm on my way," she said.
She put some water into the dog's dish and
put the cat outside, then made sure the doors were
locked. She looked in on each of the kids and turned
out their bedside lamp, hung up a shirt, threw some
dirty socks in the hamper, and had a brief conversation
with the one up still doing homework.
In her own room, she set the alarm; laid
out clothing for the next day, straightened up the shoe rack.
She added three things to her 6 most important things to do list.
She said her prayers, and visualized the accomplishment of her goals.
About that time, Dad turned off the TV and
announced to no one in particular. "I'm going to bed."
And he did...
....without another thought.
Anything extraordinary here?
Wonder why women live longer...?
'CAUSE WOMEN ARE MADE FOR THE LONG HAUL...
(And we can't die sooner because we still have too many things to do!)
