It's after midnight - it's officially our day, gals!
May your breakfast in bed be edible,
and your kitchen not require a hazmat cleaning crew.
May your flowers smell sweet,
and your chocolates be untested by little nibblers.
May you enjoy a long, fragrant soak in the tub,
and a few moments of privacy in the powder room.
May you be spared the usual round of chores,
and may they not all be awaiting you come Monday morning.
May you savor the company of those you love,
or kick 'em all out your house & relish the silence.
Happy Mother's Day to each & every one of you!
And to the original "fortuitous housewife",
all my love & gratitude.
