The Girl in a Whirl

My cousin just posted this on her organization blog, I've heard it before in song and I absolutely love it!

“The Girl in a Whirl"
by Dr. Sue

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 go to the temple at least once a week,
I change the car's tires and fix the sink's leak.
I'm taking a class on the teachings of Paul,
But that is not all, oh no, that is not all!
I play the piano and work on my talents,
My life is a wonder of fullness and balance.
I read to my children, I help all my neighbors,
I bless my community, too, with my labors.
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 of the things that I do.
I have a home business to help make some money,
I always look beautifully groomed for my honey.
My visiting teaching is done the first day,
I exercise and I cook menus gourmet.
I can garden produce each summer and fall,
But that is not all, oh no, that is not all!
"It's easy," she said,
And then she dropped dead!
