Mother



The whole house is caught up in a whirlwind of excitement as the they await her arrival. No cobwebs on the walls; the linens are freshly washed; and the silverware’s newly polished. Even the food smells a bit more enticing. Because, she’s on her way home.

That’s the way it is.

The day feels too bleak and too heavy when she’s not around, when she’s upset, or when she’s silent. Yet, the world lights up and every dream seems possible when she’s there and she’s happy. A hearty laugh from her puts everything in order.

She’s the life of the party. She’s the center of every family.
