“A Housewife’s Prayer”

prompt: "prayer"

If I don’t wake up tomorrow, I pray
Someone will pet my cats, read my
Children bedtime stories and be
Sure they take their naps.

I pray someone will feed my
Husband and help him match his
Socks, to remember Daylight
Savings Time and spring
Forward all the clocks.

I pray someone will make the
Beds and help lost shoes get found.
It seems I have a lot of things to do,
So I best just stick around.


  1. I love this prayer, Nikki. It's a keeper for all mothers!


  2. I liked this - points out the hundreds of little invisible things parents do.

    Yes, stick around! - Moskowitz

  3. BTW - isn't "housewife" an anachronism, or are you using it in a tongue-in-cheek "Real Housewives of Pearsall, Texas" way?

  4. A Stay-at-Home Mom Prayer just didn't have the same ring to it ;) I was going for a Chaucerish feel for the title lol
