She pulled me out of my chair.
She asked me, “why are you reading a book,
when there are dust bunnies everywhere?”
I was so surprised, I exclaimed out loud,
I even began to stutter!
She asked as she pointed around the room
“WHY is there SO much clutter?”
I quickly began to put things away,
back to where they really belonged.
I found myself humming and singing a tune.
It was one of Mom’s favorite songs.
I swept and vacuumed and dusted all day.
I cleaned mirrors til they were shiny and bright.
It was amazing how good I began to feel
when my house was set up just right.
I got so inspired by how things looked,
I went out and bought some flowers.
I put them in a vase upon my table,
responding to Mom’s spiritual power.
When my work was done, I sat down for a bit.
I looked around at all I had done.
I’m so glad my Mom came by to visit today!
Cleaning had been a lot of fun.
When she lived on earth she was extremely neat,
She was a perfectionist in every way.
Her house was always cheerful and bright,
Because she cleaned nearly every day!
Thank you Mother for dropping by!
I could feel your spirit everywhere.
I know you live in Heaven these days,
But today we were an excellent pair!
