Grateful for Today
A feeling bubbles up
and I can barely find the words.
A simple and heartfelt moment
of deep caring with a friend.
Black emoji hearts from my granddaughter
“you were the best part of my day Nanny”.
A teaching that hit homes
“something is happening now that demands we be present for it”.
A quiet moment on my bed
the leaves gently blowing outside my window.
My little Miss Maisie
sweet companion threw up in the car.
A long walk after a
challenging conversation that left me tired.
A kitty curled up in my lap
forcing me to stay put for the moment.
The sun is setting
as all these precious moments disappear.
for all these moments
and for each of you.
