Fly Away Home: Haiku Friday

Never have I felt
needed as when arranging
who tends to my kids.

Take three kids, four days
of school. Subtract the momma.
Village required.

It's Haiku Friday -- and the last day of NaBloPoMo -- and I'm visiting my mother, who is recovering quite nicely from surgery. But it takes seven individuals -- not counting their wonderful father -- to get them from here to there to over yonder to back there to here again.

Sometimes it does seem to take a village - even if it's just a small village!

Best wishes for your mother's continued recovery!

glad to hear that your mother is doing well. how did it go with your brother? did i miss that post?

Great 'ku, as always!

So glad your mom is recovering nicely and that you can be there with her!

Funny how nothing runs as smoothly as when Momma is in control.

Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman, Where for art thou?
Says Patois - I'm right here people, and I have to run this show all by myself!
Glad to hear your Mom's on the mend too!

So glad that your mother is recovering nicely; continued best wishes.

There's just a little bit of satisfaction that it takes 7 people to fill your shoes, isn't there? I know there would be with me.

Safe travels and great 'ku!
