At the end of the day I look about,
and all the things I didn't complete are there for all to see.
While what I did do goes unnoticed, even by myself.
The meals consumed, The clothes in the closets,
The listening ear, The bumps kissed, The hugs,
The baby smiles on a swing.
At the end of the day I am tired and discouraged;
The mending still sits, This room is too cluttered,
The sheets unchanged, The dust undisturbed.
Dear Lord, please help me remember I am only one person with a big job.
Help me to see what I did do as clearly as I now see what I didn’t do
so that I may rest through the night in peace
after a well-spent day.
(I can't find a author name for this....
but it's on my fridge this week and reminds me that I do get a lot done each day regardless of what I see at night!!!)
