Arriving Home from Work

A wagging tail and a little wet nose,

My fuzzy slippers and some hot cocoa,

The fireplace flickering, warming the den,

It’s so very good to be home again!


Back where I can put my feet on the chairs,

Without the bother of questioning stares,

I can breathe easy in my big, soft clothes

And forget the day’s work and all its woes.


Fixing to fix dinner there on the stove –

When it is ready, they’ll all come in droves!

Round the table we’ll grab hands and say “grace.”

How I thank God for this most special place-














About danardoyle

I am a Catholic, working wife and mother. I have three children ages 10, 16 and 23. I am extremely busy, as you can imagine. I aim each and every day to put God first in my life, to teach my children the Faith, to be a supportive spouse, keep the house in order, and do my job outside of the home well, too. That's an impossible task - without Divine intervention! Here, I hope to share my triumphs and struggles with other working moms in the same boat. I will share the tools I have discovered to making it all work - most days!
