A Homemaker's Blessing

May you as a busy young mother,
Have these blessings all come true.
May the Savior's grace and love
Guide all you say and do.

And while you're working in water-
I hope your nose doesn't itch.
May you always have full bobbins-
Especially to topstitch.

May your pleats come out even,
May your drains never clog;
When you come in from the cold-
May your glasses never fog.

May your wringer never jam,
And your honey always flow.
May your toddlers always tell you
Before they have to "go."

May you never find a Lego block,
While walking with bar feet.
May your windows be full of finger prints,
Happy, sticky, and sweet.

May the wind blow all your leaves away,
Before the snowflakes land.
And may our heavenly Father
Hold you always in his hand.

And when your busy day is over,
In spite of all that's left to do-
May you smile up at your creator,
The way your baby smiles at you!
