Mother's Day

Yippee it’s Mother’s Day,…a day when mothers get to play

A day when others wait on her and let her contented heart purr

She might get breakfast in the bed,…(too bad the bacon looks so dead!)

A kiss, a hug, and homemade card,…and dad might even mow the yard

A bubble bath and time to linger,…“MOM... I need help, I cut my finger!”

Well so much for the bubble bath,… she suddenly begins to laugh

“Here let me put that band- aid on,…now go help daddy with the lawn”

She crawls back underneath the cover and then she hears another,... "Motherrr!!!”

“What is it Zach?,…I’m trying to rest”. “I need some help getting dressed”

After that she tries to read, but then the dog just stood and peed

She let him out, then cleaned the mess, and from her closet picks a dress

“Something soft and kind of pretty,…oh no,… I’m bloated it doesn’t fitty”

Why today for PMS?, I really want to wear that dress!

“Oh well I guess I’ll wear stretch jeans, and start a crock pot full of beans”

“Then after church we’ll have some lunch, …then clean the kitchen is my hunch

So much for a day of rest,…those poor guys, they tried their best”

Then in comes dad and Zachary too,…“Mom we bought these flowers for you!”

“Oh that’s so sweet, …they smell good too”…“Hey mom,... they’re pretty just like you!”

She smiles with pleasure at her guys and then she suddenly replies,…

“On Mother’s Day I’m feeling blessed,…My men are just the very BEST!”

She grabs them both in sudden lurch, and hugs them tight, then off to church!

But I like dead bacon.

Breakfast in bed? Nope my husband ask me to join him at the diner for breakfast of steak and eggs. Yes, it was good.

Hope you too are enjoying your Mother's Day.

Love ya,

First - thank you for posting today on my Not Me Monday! Honestly,, it made ME smile to read YOUR post there. Thanks so much.
I enjoyed your Mothers Day poem -And as for breakfast in bed - I got homemade homefries,, made by my 10 year old daughter,, perfectly fried to perfection- minus the dirt from lack of washing the potatoe - little gritty, but straight from the heart!
Did you get a new blog loook recently? It looks different! I love it! I will be stopping by again soon!
