Everyday Life and My Revelation
The house is a mess and we are swimming in bills.
There's no money left over for comforts or thrills.
You are working two jobs. You are tired or gone.
There seems no end to this ride you are on.
The dog is shedding tufts of black hair.
There are piles of clothes and toys everywhere.

But, the taxes are done and there's food in my belly.
And when Cole laughs he shakes like he's made out of jelly.
I'm finally confident in how much you love me.
And when I'm alone I don't feel that lonely.
There's a hug in the morning and kisses at night.
And I've just figured out that we'll all be alright.
Author's Notes:
Man, I had a hard morning. I was late and the house is such a mess. Then, just like the poem says, my three year old laughed in the car on the way to daycare and everything came into focus. Guess I was sweating the small stuff.

"I'm finally confident in how much you love me." How important is this. It makes the rest of it pale, doesn't it? Except of course, for the jelly roll. ML
