Sometimes life gets hectic,
and I fail to truly see,
the simple and sweet pleasures,
that bring sunshine to me.
Like a "petite" Coke Slurpee,
on a wet and cloudy day.
And the giggles from my children,
when they...Hallelujah!...peacefully play.
Like going to the mailbox,
and finding a brown package inside--
Knowing that as soon as kids are asleep,
I'll take my "October reads" and hide.
Like quiet times and blankets,
a beloved thumb and a brown-eyed boy.
A moment of calm to remind me,
that this is what I call joy.
(What are your simple and sweet pleasures? Remember to find joy today!)
