Life According To Linda

I have been called “Late Linda”… a time… or maybe two
Last minute things …get in the way… and alter my skid~do

“Looky Lou Linda”… for years at a time
When I searched for a house I’d like better than mine!

“Lazy Linda”… while reading a book
And ignoring the duties …refusing to cook!

“Long-winded Linda”… when telling a story
Can’t end it without receiving the glory

“Linda who’s lavish”….extravagant too
Over the top with the things that I do

“Loving ‘em Linda”…when it comes to my kids
Wouldn’t trade them for nothin’… So don’t offer bids!

“Linda who longs…to be loving and kind”
But so often failing…when I speak my mind!

“Linda who’s learning”…but has a long way to go
The older I get…seems the less that I know

“Lucky Linda?”…no I call it blessed
Each morning His mercies…are simply the best!

“Linda who likes writing stories… in rhyme”
They may not be good but they fill up my time

“Life according to Linda”… may not appeal to you
But I thank God for each new day…and start my list anew!
