I lower the blinds at night and raise them in the morning. I close doors, drawers, and toilet lids. I know all the kids' phone numbers by heart, and I observe all birthdays. I pay the bills, deal with IRS, and take care of the bank accounts. I strike up relationships with the neighbors and wave at every vehicle that goes down our country road. I give generous tips in all circumstances. I pray for everyone--everyone--every day.
I am a woman, a wife, a mother. I can do no other.
