My Legacy

 

She’s growing up fast.
She’s making me proud.
She knows things I didn’t teach her.

I smile when she repeats
the lessons learned from me.

I cringe when someone else
infected her brain
with unsavory thoughts.

I teach her
to think for herself.

I remind her that
she should be loved
for more than her striking beauty.

I encourage her
to keep trying.

I love her amazing mind.

I pray that she will outgrow
her short-tempereredness
much sooner than I did.

I prepare her for the world
as best I can.

She’s my baby girl.

About to snap!

I’m not on my game today.
100 crazy minions got the best of me.
Well, actually, there were only 10,
but I could have sworn there were hundreds.

There’s one in particular
who reaaaallly gets under my skin.
I’m convinced he does things
just to irritate me.

Then there’s another
who’s definitely related
to the Tasmanian Devil —
she’s totally out of control!!

I’m being tested.
I’m being pushed to my limit.
I’ve been holding it together
but I fear I’m about to snap.

I’m tired!!!

My daughter (aka Munchkin) is only 5 and already she has a very artistic side. I thoroughly enjoy her work and this is one of many pieces I’ve hung on my wall to enjoy daily as a part of our home’s decor. I humbly share my pride with you. Enjoy! 🌷

The evening shift

image

 

She doesn’t understand why I have to go.
She cries because she wants me home.
It’s all for our family — a better tomorrow,
But today is all that matters to her.

In my heart I hope it’ll all be worth it.
I’m doing my best, pushing to the limit.
One day I hope she’ll truly appreciate,
It’s all for her, our amazing future awaits.
