Just an Ordinary Day

Just an Ordinary Day

Just an ordinary day, she says,
as she looks at stacks of dishes,
picturing feather-soft pillows beckoning.

A crisis-free day so rarely occurs,
in the life of a mother, wife,
co-worker, daughter, and friend.

Dishes washed, she sighs,
at the quiet house, all asleep,
at the end of this ordinary day.

  1. Ahh, yes. I can relate to this! When I finish the dishes at night, I definitely sigh. Last chore of the day. :)


  2. Amy, welcome to my blog! Truthfully, dishes and I don't do battle as often as we should. Search for 'insightme86' on YouTube and you'll see what I mean!


Would love to read and respond to your comments, so please post! I blog Monday through Saturday, mostly as a night-owl. Please remember to type the validation word on the screen that pops up after you comment--my professional code of business conduct contract and code of ethics necessitates that I moderate comments on public social media, so there will be a short delay in viewing your comment online.
