A Mama’s Pockets

a mama's pockets

When I reach into my pockets at the end of each day,

I often discover reminders that, yes—I was a Mama today.

Cheerios picked up from the kitchen floor,

A crumpled up grocery list from an adventure to the store.

Tissues from wiping a runny nose and tear-filled eyes,

A rock given to me in love while playing outside.

An empty wrapper from my breakfast on the go,

A tiny piece of squished up, dry play dough.

Wipes soiled in dirt from cleaning little hands,

And so many other reminders that I am Blessed,

To have pockets full of priceless Mama strands.
