I have sand in my soul from the day,
A collection of OWS blister my spirit
I’ll list a few of them so You can see how justified they are.
My colleague, (you know who she is!) revealed something that I asked her not to tell.
My children did and are still doing their usual fighting and I want to put my fingers in my ears so I won’t hear, “Mom, tell him to stop”, and “Mom, she hit me!”
My husband, sometimes incorrectly called my helpmate, is snoring in bed.
I’m loading the dishwasher and packing lunches.
The list goes on into the night with me while I get ready for a similar tomorrow.
I'm disappointed in myself for not being more patient and less frustrated.
You created oysters and taught them to slowly fashion pearls from irritating grains of sand,
Help me make pearls with your love and forgiveness so I can be an effective oyster!
