Come In...

Come in, but don’t expect to find
All dishes done and floors that shine.
Observe the crumbs, cereal, and toys galore.
The smudgy prints upon the windows and doors.
The little ones we shelter here
Don’t thrive on a spotless atmosphere.
They’re more inclined to disarray
And carefree messy play.

Their needs are great and their patience small.
All day I’m at their beck and call.
It’s Mommy come! Mommy see!
Mommy change the channel on TV.
Wiggly worms and scraped knees.
Painted pictures and blocks piled high.
My floors and house a mess, the days go by.
Some future day they’ll flee this nest,
And I at last will have a rest!
Now you tell me which matters more,
A happy child or a polished floor?

I found this on Christinia's Blog 365 Days of Grace and just loved it!  Christinia is also pregnant and is about 1 week behind me. I found her blog a while back, and jsut fell in love with it!  She has a beautiful little spot there, and a beautiful daughter, Gracie, go check it out!  I love Christinia's photography as well:)

Also, prayers and thoughts go out to the people of Japan and surrounding areas during this time, and pray that the people and their country are able to pull together through this crisis: You can see more HERE.
