Don’t Rush the Mush

mush

I’ve cared for a 100 year old lady for over 2 years and she’s had “mush” – cream of wheat – every morning. She always says “Don’t rush the mush.” Here’s our morning routine – guilt free…

Hush…

I’m snuggled in my comfy plush

Basking in my coffee flush

When you’re a hundred there’s no rush

Sleeping till noon won’t make me blush.

Take your time, help someone else first

One more snooze then I’ll wash & brush.

 

 

I know it’s my favorite dish of the day,

Topped with brown sugar and luscious cream,

But please my dear, no rush on the mush!

  1. Her thoughts exactly! She loves her mush but she loves her comfy bed more… :). She had a really, really rough childhood. It’s such a pleasure to give her comfort and joy in her last days.

  2. This is the first time I’ve ever heard anyone mention Cream of Wheat, which we had almost every morning when I was growing up. And Cocoa Wheat, as well.
