I will eat a meal by myself and wish I had little ones to share it with.

I will take a lonely shower and wonder where everybody went.

I will miss the noise.

I will sit and knit without somebody tangling the yarn behind me.

I will go to the grocery store alone, and feel like people don't really know who I am because they don't know I am a mother.

I will have clean shoulders, but they will be cold.

I will wish for more to do around the house.

I will wake up in the  morning after sleeping all night long, but the room next to mine will be empty.

I will finish the laundry.... and it will stay finished for a day or so.

I will have clean floors but will hear no pitter patters of little feet just learning to walk.

Someday I will have to rediscover who I am without the constant companionship of little people,

but not today.

Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will be as one. See the link below for more info.
