As we plow into another weekend, I take a moment to say,
here I am. I’m being here now.
I’m busy but I’m being here now, for myself and for my family.
He asked me why I look so busy all the time.
I said because I had four people to take care of.
And then I was asked to list them.
Another week’s ended.
The children have grown in some small way and
I stayed here and did my best this week
for today is all I’ll ever have
and almost more than my heart can bear.
