Home

Unswept floor

Dishes in the sink

Rumpled beds

Mountains of laundry

Crooked rugs

Crayon on the walls

Toothpaste on the bedspread

One shoe lost

Trash can overflowing

Crumbs on the table

Reminders of…

Forty little toes

Laughter during lunch

Snuggles under covers

Teachable moments

Long conversations

Relaxing in his arms

Memories being made

Sloppy wet kisses

Winks across the room

Holding grubby hands

Home, the spot of earth supremely blest,
A dearer, sweeter spot than all the rest.
-Robert Montgomery
