At the end of a day
Spent fixing a broken car in 100 degree heat,
After hearing that yet another job wasn't going to happen,
And cleaning numerous dirty diapers, from one little girl.
Therefore, ordering cloth diapers because, well, diapers are expensive.
Then spending a few dollars at our favorite store: What a Bargain!
and sipping coffee from a 'new to us' place,
We showered, and combed, and clothed.
And while I wasn't able to paint my toes as I would have wished
I did shave my legs,
and fed my baby,
and climbed into a car with my love
to drive to Taco Tuesday and eat our share of $1.50
pork, chicken and beef encased in tortillas.
For dessert, frozen yogurt
and a walk
and a talk
about our year.
Naming the amazing amount of hard things
Praising the incredible amount of good things
and figuring out what we want to do better,
who we want to BE better.
And at the end I knew
that chipped toe-nail polish
and dirty diapers
can only culminate in joy
when you join hands with another
and say: we are grateful.
These are our lives of worship.
