Email of the Day: I Knew My Lifetime Path When I Was Just a Teen

Email of the Day: I Knew My Lifetime Path When I Was Just a Teen

I’m in my mid-forties and am a stay-at-home mom to eleven children! I used to listen to you often as a teen, and back then I wrote a poem I want to share with you, as I knew even then what was my chosen path in life. I call it β€œMy Kingdom.”


You may close the door upon me

And think when you are gone,

β€œPoor thing, she’s stuck at home all day.”

How wrong, my dear, how wrong.

I am queen of my own castle,

I say with such a sway,

For I decide what things will fill

The hours of my day.

I can take a walk with baby,

Whenever I may please

And watch the robins peck for worms

And taste the sweet spring breeze.

I’ve clothes to mend and tears to dry,

Toys strewn across the floor.

But I have children’s laughter too.

Who could ask for more?

You come home to me, dear

Tired from a world that’s cold.

And I have angel cheeks to kiss

And golden hands to hold.

And little arms around my neck

And whispers in my ear.

Your world outside my kingdom walls

Can’t hold such treasures, dear.
