Mom's shoes for a day

Have always looked up to her.
Seen her running,
Through the multitude of her chores;
Seen her juggle many a role,
Deftly;Expertly;
Falling in line, every time,
With those endless expectations;
Ever caring,
With an unconditional, unparalleled,
Absolute and faultless love of hers.
Content with her niche.
Her shoes, it would be -
If it could be.

  1. So sweet, Ruby. My mom. Even my grandmother. Those would have been great ideas. But no. I went with my cat.

    Ridiculous.

    Thanks for linking up!

  4. That's sweet. I hope I come across as that to my own kids--in charge of many things. Instead, I suspect they think I just sit around eating their cookies while they're at school. Which is only PARTIALLY true.

  5. This was so sweet! (I'm not sure I'd want to walk in my mom's shoes though...I had thought of an easier route: cat - just like ODNT. Now that's an easy road :))

    1. The timing was a coincidence. I have been missing home lately.

  10. I learned two valuable things: time management, and the idea that 'its gotta get done, so do it'.

    Thanks for the reminder of where I got it from.
