A Mother’s Listening


OSI Prompt 58: Listening



It begins with mewls

And little soft cries of distress

Followed by demands

And never ending questions

Finally only phone calls 



I am off to get ready for Ladybug’s big birthday bash at the park. It appeared the weather was going to cooperate when I woke up this morning: It was already 70 degrees. But the last few hours there has been some really strong winds. I hope they go away by party time! Enjoy your Palm Sunday, everyone. God bless.
