The dishes may not all be done,
And dirty socks may be in one
Or two spots that they shouldn’t be,
But what is all of that to me
When a little girl has set up Tea?
The garden has a few more weeds
Than probably the produce needs,
And possibly a bug at play,
But they will last another day
When a boy of mine needs to pray.
I’m not a fashion model, and
I don’t wear diamonds on my hand,
Or pretty baubles in my ear,
But I am making time to hear
The trials of my husband dear.
The company that comes to call
May needs look down so not to fall,
And step around a thing or two,
But if they care to kick off shoes,
A listening ear and tea will do.
I’m not a perfect housekeep, or
The type to get it done and more,
Sometimes I find my house, it seems
Much better in my waking dreams,
But home is what the heart esteems.
So I will focus on the best,
A little work, a little rest,
And time for all who come aboard,
Time of prayer to hear my Lord,
