The Girl in a Whirl - just had to share

The Girl in a Whirl
by 'Dr. Sue'
(a.k.a. Vickie Gunther)

Look at me, look at me, look at me now!
... You could do what I do
If you only knew how.
I study the scriptures one hour each day; I bake, I upholster, I
scrub, and I pray.
I always keep all the commandments completely; I speak to my little
ones gently and sweetly.
I help in their classrooms!
I sew all they wear!
I drive them to practice!
I cut all their hair!
I memorize names of the General Authorities; I focus on things to
be done by priorities.
I play the piano!
I bless with my talents!
My toilets all sparkle!
My checkbooks all balance!
Each week every child gets a one-on-one date; I attend all my
meetings (on time! Never late!)
I'm taking a class on the teachings of Paul,
But that is not all! Oh, no. That is not all .
I track my bad habits 'til each is abolished; Our t-shirts are
ironed!
My toenails are polished!
Our family home evenings are always delightful; The lessons I give
are both fun and insightful.
I do genealogy faithfully, too.
It's easy to do all the things that I do!
I rise each day early, refreshed and awake; I know all the names of
each youth in my stake!
I read to my children!
I help all my neighbors!
I bless the community, too, with my labors.
I exercise and I cook menus gourmet; My visiting teaching is done
the first day!
(I also go do it for someone who missed hers.
It's the least I can do for my cherished ward sisters.) I chart
resolutions and check off each goal; I seek each "lost lamb" on my
Primary roll.
I can home-grown produce each summer and fall.
But that is not all! Oh, no. That is not all .
I write in my journal!
I sing in the choir!
Each day, I write "thank you's" to those I admire.
My sons were all Eagles when they were fourteen!
My kids get straight A's!
And their bedrooms are clean!
I have a home business to help make some money; I always look
beautifully groomed for my honey.
I go to the temple at least once a week; I change the car's tires!
I fix the sink's leak!
I grind my own wheat and I bake all our bread; I have all our meals
planned out six months ahead.
I make sure I rotate our two-years' supply; My shopping for
Christmas is done by July!
These things are not hard;
'tis good if you do them;
You can if you try!
Just set goals and pursue them!
It's easy to do all the things that I do!
If you plan and work smart, you can do them all, too!
It's easy!" she said
and then she dropped dead.




I laughed so hard at this - just had to share x
