Wipe, Wipe, Wipe

BY: variousauthors

In the morning I wipe upWWipeWipeWipe
the spilled cereal milk,
then I wipe off the milk mustaches.
When the baby cries,
it means she needs wiping.
Later I'm wiping dirty hand prints off of the walls.
It's raining when the kids get home from school...
I'm wiping off damp heads
and wiping up muddy footprints.
Dinner includes wiping as well:
the stove, the counter top, the table.
The baby cries again. More wiping.

At last it's bedtime,
which means the bathroom sink
where my little regiment brushed their teeth
probably needs wiping.
Is it any wonder after all this wiping,
I'm the one who feels wiped?
Yet when I look back over my day,
and bow my head to You,
there's one last bit of wiping --
those tears of gratitude;
those shining jewels of thanks.
