I used to wear a white sweater,
I got it long ago.
And I love to wear and snuggle it
When I feel all alone.
But I lost my favorite sweater
when life was more fast paced.
And now I wear a black one
because old whitey must be replaced.
Late at night when the kids are down,
And scrapbooking doesn’t take away my frown.
I put my sweater on and make myself a drink
And then it all begins…when my mind starts to think.
I’m grateful for this day, today.
For I played with, fed, and taught my kids.
I cleaned, crafted and organized,
And I relax now while I sit.
But the sweater reminds me more than that
of the things I’m grateful for.
I think of my family near and far,
Jase, our kids, and more.
And so my day has ended,
And this sweater…you could say
has turned this frown upside down
And chased my tears away!!
