Every Morning

Every morning,, when I wake up, 

I stop and take a while,

to remember what makes me happy,

the things that make me smile…


A baby’s laughter, 

flowers blooming,


holding hands.




a walk along the sand.


The aroma of cookies baking,

the smell of peanut butter in a jar…

My favorite book,

or music,

or movie…

gazing at the stars.


It takes me but a moment

and I’m sure there are things I’ve missed…

but it makes me eager to begin the new day


and start adding to my list.
