in the middle of the hustle
everything stops

tissues pile up
the teapot whistles

family plans canceled
thermometer begs for time off

momma's heart aches to take care of the little ones
but her body aches too much to get out of bed

daddy works hard to fill in
gets rewarded with sweet hugs
hopefully not nasty germs

wakeful nights
3 feverish bodies
one trip to the laundromat with a soiled comforter

living life's hard moments with grace and gentleness
we appreciate what we have


wait patiently to come out the other side

sniff...sniff... I used to be the laundromat... boo-hoo!
