by Cheryl Merrick

Admiring her attentiveness
    to small details,
I try to be
the conscientious homemaker.

Awed by her exactness
in managing the minutia of life,
I strive to do the same.

Impressed by her vitality,
I push myself to exercise more.

Touched by her nurturing devotion,
I spend my time
trying to emulate her.

All the while forgetting
that others look at my example
     of righteous living
and want to be like me.
