real life

Every so often I have to get out of the house.

For the most part though, this is where I’m at.

This is where life happens.  This is how we do it.

There is no one to see me.

There is no one cheering you on.

And that’s ok.

That’s my job now-

That’s my joy now.

I sneak away to use the bathroom

and catch a glimpse of the bedroom.

We worked on it yesterday.

We’ll work on it again today.

Despair will ask me for a snack-

just a tiny piece of my heart.

Today I’ll tell him no.

And then I’ll lift up my head and see

I will stand tall and watch in a grateful amazement

(by now there’s not a dry eye on my face)

And I’ll keep thanking God for this chance of a lifetime.
