Oh, I LOVE this...
~ furry cat faces
~ finding a perfect skipping rock
~ the morning chill that tickles my nose
~ the smell of stew and cornbread cooking
~ when people I love let me talk them into things
~ the way he massages my feet as we watch a movie
~ the way the leaves try on touches of red and orange
a glove here, a purse there, a peep toe shoe on that tall maple
and overnight, the trees are wearing their ballgowns and ready to dance
~ filling my arms with warm towels and sheets, fresh from the dryer
~ piles and piles of books from the library, too many to fit in my library tote
~ spraying Sloane's fresh sheets with lavender water as I put them on her soft bed
~ friends who write to say, "I'm thinking of you. Tell me how you're doing. Really tell me."
~ Sloane always says, "It's my new watermelon shampoo" when I tell her she smells good
Life is good. And so very, very sweet.
