Someday there will be no dirty clothes strewn about the house. Someday there will be no potty seat on my toilet. Someday, no fingerprints will grace my windows. Someday there will not be a pile of dirty dishes forever by my sink. Someday I will make only my own bed. Someday I will take a shower in a quiet bathroom by myself. Someday there will be no dirty diapers. Someday there will be no colicky baby to walk for hours. Someday "why mommy" will not echo in my ears. Someday my house will be clean. Someday I will have very cute and very breakable decorations--and they won't be broken. Someday I'll have fancy gourmet dinner parties with adult conversation. Someday my house will be quiet. Someday I will be sad. Someday I will wish those fingerprints back on the windows. Someday there will be oodles of leftovers because I don't know how to cook for only two. Someday I'll dream about laundry strewn on the floors. Someday I will close my eyes and will the feeling of a colicky baby into my arms. Someday my walls will only echo with the memory of giggles and "why mommy". Someday I will miss today. But today there is laundry on my floor. And I must go take care of it.
Forgive me Lord for my daily complaints. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for healthy, loving, beautiful, messy children.
