...i say things I don't mean and hope they forget them
...i say things I mean and hope they never forget them surprised when my middle child rises early
...for 3 years he never fails to break the morning silence with "juice?"
...i wish I'd done the dishes the night before seems to take me all day to do them
...i consider brushing teeth & hair [occasionally face] "getting ready"
...i remember when I took an hour or two "getting ready" [what was I doing?]
...i complain about the day to day chores, messes, diaper changes, and meals
...i remember there are those without houses to clean, children to make messes, diapers to use, or ingredients for dinner

Someone once said, 
"Your life is made up of 'todays',
what you do today will be what you do with your life"

Reminding myself of this everyday, helps me remember that habits and love not practiced today won't magically appear in the legacy I leave.
