A Random Act of Kindness

The house is so untidy,
and I have not the energy to clean.
My back is aching, my head is pounding,
and all I want to do is scream.
The kids are causing a ruckus
and they're trying to drive me insane,
My sister said to me "Let me take the girls,"
relief spreads across my face quite plain.
I called her up the following day
asking when to pick up the girls
She told me "I'll drop them off tomorrow,"
In a voice as soft as pearls.
this poem is a sweet, loving kiss,
To my thoughtful little sis.
I want to thank my sister for caring for my girls while I've been ill. She really did me an unselfish act of kindness. *hugs*
"A Random Act of Kindness always sets off a chain, which may or may not circle back to you, but which makes the world a better place to be in. See it play out in our Pay it Forward feature, exclusively at the Burrow."
