Strength is finally coming back; but do not over do
Weather it’s done first or last hours are too few!
So much to do, so much I’ve let go
Where do I start? I just don’t know.
Most important things I will do first
Balance the check book-what could be worse?
Dust, dust everywhere I look I see-
Sometimes I wish there were three of me!
Time flys by there’s no stopping it!
Should I read a book? No time to sit!
I’ve always felt I had to accomplish something each day
Takes so much time to do it the right way!
I’m back to volunteering a little each week.
Back to seeing friends for their company I seek.
Still take my nap each day
Still take time out to pray.
It’s very clear, that I’m still here!
