I wish I took more time out to twirl, to play, to enjoy the day.
I wish I yelled less and smiled more.
I wish my children would listen…the first time.
I wish I could fix problems that are bigger than I am.
I wish the to-do list would remain empty, for a little while at least.
I wish things could just be easy instead of always difficult (although I tend to do difficult quite well.)
I wish things would stay clean.
I wish dogs could only pee outside.
I wish I always knew what to make for dinner and that the fixings were always in my pantry.
I wish there was more time to read.
I wish there was more time to spend with friends.
I wish there was more peace and quite.
Because even after almost 8 years of motherhood, this mama still wants more.
