A day late and a dollar short
I’m very tired and out of sort.
Everything’s calling to be done,
There’s not enough hours from sun to sun,
Attack the kitchen, grab a pot,
Whip up supper, all nonstop.
Set the table with love and prayers
They all come running down the stairs.
Time stands still as I watch them eat,
They laugh and talk oh what a treat.
Do the dishes, baths and bed
Out with the lights at the old homestead.
Early to rise as the rooster crows,
Hit the floor running as everyone knows.
The day begins with morning chores
Prayers and breakfast and out the doors.
With eyes to heaven where cometh my strength
I take a deep breath, my spirit drinks.
I say my thanks to heaven above
For the treasures I have with all my love.
I jump in my car that’s old and frail
And hit the gas down the trail.
Another day another dollar
Off I go down the holler.
I’m always surprised but God is not
He stops the Devil’s evil plot.
