I want to share this article a friend forwarded me through mail to all of you, especially to the mommies out there. Kudos to the person who authored this and to all the moms…this one’s for you because you deserve an applause for the all things that you do for you family! And for the dads out there, we are thankful for the love and support.
Mom and Dad were watching TV when Mom said, ‘I’m tired, and it’s getting late.I think I’ll go to bed’ She went to the kitchen to make sandwiches for the next day’s lunches. Rinsed out the popcorn bowls, took meat out of the freezer for supper thefollowing evening, checked the cereal box levels, filled the sugar container,put spoons and bowls on the table and started the coffee pot for brewing thenext morning. She then put some wet clothes in the dryer, put a load of clothes into thewasher, ironed a shirt and secured a loose button She picked up the game pieces left on the table, put the phone back on thecharger and put the telephone book into the drawer. She watered the plants, emptied a wastebasket and hung up a towel to dry. She yawned and stretcheand headed for the bedroom. She stopped by the deskand wrote a note to the teacher, counted out some cash for the field trip, andpulled a text book out from hiding under the chair. She signed a birthday card for a friend, addressed and stamped the envelope andwrote a quick note for the grocery store. She put both near her purse.
Mom then washed her face with 3 in 1 cleanser, put on her Night solution & age-fighting moisturizer, brushed and flossed her teeth and filed her nails. Dad called out, ‘I thought you were going to bed.’ ‘I’m on my way,’ she said. She put some water into the dog’s dish and put the cat outside, then made sure the doors were locked and the patio light was on. She looked in on each of the kids and turned out their bedside lamps and TVs, hung up a shirt, threw some dirty socks into the hamper, and had a brief conversation with the one up still doing homework. In her own room, she set the alarm; laid out clothing for the next day, straightened up the shoe rack. She added three things to her 6 most important things to do list She said her prayers, and visualized the accomplishment of her goals. About that time, Dad turned off the TV and announced to no one in particular. ‘I’m going to bed.’ And he did…without another thought.
Anything extraordinary here? Wonder why women live longer…? ‘CAUSE WE ARE MADE FOR THE LONG HAUL….. (and we can’t die sooner, we still have things to do!)
