Remember when you're stressed, your day is coming.

I know that there are times during the years of motherhood that you can feel that your children are driving you to insanity. So in honor of Mother's Day I want to share a poem that was given to me a long time ago but it always gives me a good laugh. I don't know who wrote it but she was right on track as far as I'm concerned. I hope it will relieve some of your stress and give you something fun to look forward to when you're "An Old Lady"

"When I'm An Old Lady"

When I'm an old lady, I'll live with my kids,

and make them so happy, just as they did.

I want to pay back all the joy they've provided,

returning each deed. Oh, they'll be so excited!

(When I'm and old lady and live with my kids)

I'll write on the wall with reds, whites and blues

and bounce on the furniture wearing my shoes.

I'll drink from the carton and then leave it out.

I'll stuff all the toilets, and oh, how they'll shout.

(When I'm an old lady and live with my kids)

When they cook dinner and call me to meals,

I'll not eat my green beans or salads congealed.

I'll gag on my okra, spill milk on the table

and when they get angry, run fast as I'm able.

(When I'm an old lady and live with my kids)

I'll sit close to the TV, through the channels I'll click,

I'll cross both my eyes and see of they stick.

I'll take off my socks and throw one away,

And play in the mud until the end of the day.

(When I'm an old lady and live with my kids)

And later in bed, I'll lay back and sigh.

Thank God in prayer and then close my eyes,

My kids will look down with a smile slowly creeping,

and say with a groan, "She's so sweet when she's sleeping.

(When I'm an old lady and live with my kids)
