Motherhood

Motherhood is a job that offers no pay

We as mothers are lucky to even get an off day

It’s a job that just keeps on taking

Being strong women we keep on giving

…………………………………………………….

Blessed with this task we must hold fast

As we keep delivering down to our last

God must think highly of us

To demand so much of us

……………………………………………………

We’ve been entrusted with great responsibility

So there’s no deniability

Our roles in our children’s lives are significant

If done well, they can be magnificent

Society and the world at large are counting on us

So let’s make no mistake, the future is at stake.

Another Day

Thank you Lord, for another day

Another opportunity to rise and shine

Another opportunity to use my time

To make a difference and be better

……………………………………………………………………………

But I’m just one person

Does my contribution and participation really matter?

The inner voice responds, “Of course it does!

You were placed on this earth for reason

Let your spark leave your mark

In the lives of those who meet you

Even the people who briefly greet you

May their memories of you be sweet.”

………………………………………………………………………

This brings a smile to my face

 And steadiness to my pace

So with this in mind, I choose to slow things down and unwind

Always remembering to take it one day at a time

……………………………………………………………………………….

To enjoy my life and the people in it

To be grateful and not wasteful

To take pleasure in the little things

The inner voice reminds me, “You could be gone in just one wink

Your life may not be as bad as you think.”

…………………………………………………………………………

So I make the decision

To enjoy and treasure each day

Not too much work or too much play

For tomorrow is another day.
