To mothers everywhere, God Bless you


At the crack of dawn
Lunches to pack
Stifles a yawn
It’s hard to keep track

Jen hates white bread
No mustard for Don
So lightly to tread
Her family sleeps on

Let them sleep in
She loves them all so
Packs the lunch tin
Her face all aglow.

Hubby comes down
A peck on her cheek
He grabs her night gown
Says lets take a peek

She slips away
To busy to stop
There’s no time to play
Up the stairs at a hop.

Rise and shine all
She says with a shrill
She runs down the hall
Must take her pill.

Another day starts
Out the door they all go
With love in their hearts
They all love her so.

Love the picture. Can picture her going up the stairs to wake up the family too. Seeing them off is the greatest adventure of the day. Then she can go about her housework or business of the day without so many cares. My sister in law always saw her grandson off at the bus stop even in Senior high when boys did not want to be seen off to.

Family... The magic word that makes the house a home.

"FAMILY MORNING" stimulates the sense of togetherness and the sublimity of family.

Thank You, Poet for this gift of art and love.
