The laundry can wait.
Clean floors will happen another day.
Frozen pizza will do for dinner.
Martha Stewart will be a continual dream.
The TV will be our friend.
Every tear will be accounted for.
Every request will be nurtured.
Every hot cheek will be soothed.
I will nap with my little one because he needs me.
The computer will rest.
And we will all, eventually, be well...
and probably better off than before.
