Some day

Some day, I will eat a hot meal.

Some day, no one will bang on the bathroom door.

Some day, I won’t break up fights over whose caterpillar won the speed trials.

Some day, I won’t have to hear the same song played over and over.

Some day, there won’t be man-sized teenage boys wrestling on my kitchen floor.

Some day

Some day, co-sleeping will only refer to my husband and I.

Some day, eight chicken breasts will last a whole week instead of a single meal.

Some day, the laundry will stay caught up.

Some day, no one will interrupt me in the middle of a phone call.

Some day, I will drive a vehicle that seats less than 12.

Some day, I’ll clean the bathroom once a week instead of once a day.

Thank you, Lord, that today is not that day.

Where no oxen are, the manger is clean,
But much revenue comes by the strength of the ox.

Proverbs 14:4
