In the hustle and bustle of everyday life,
there is a room where gathering occurs.
Much goes unnoticed, much goes unseen
so much part of a daily routine.

The edges of a table, the paint is worn
From its holdings, time is torn.
Paws stretched and left their mark
More to add to kitchen spark.

Meals prepared, dishes washed, schedules confirmed
Math and Reading lessons learned.
Conversation, bills paid, scoldings received
Plans for futures, togetherness believed.

Games played, friendships built
Treasures made from pieces of a quilt.
Praying moments, paper writings
God found inspiration, quiet sightings.

Birthday cakes, turkeys and more
Holiday happenings, more time is tore.
Chairs added, chairs taken away
Moments treasured in a special way.

In the hustle and bustle of everyday life,
There is a room where gathering occurs.
Don’t let the little things go unseen,
Special moments in daily routine.
