It makes me happy….
to see strawberries ripening on my daughter’s plant
to know that the baby birds pooping on my porch will soon fly away
to sit in the sunshine
to share a few moments over coffee with my neighbor
to see my husband at the end of a long day
to hear my daughter sing and not realize she is way off-key
to watch my son be kind to the little boy who is just a little bit different from the others
to get a card in the mail, just because
to slip into a bed made with freshly washed sheets
to wash the last dish of the day
to look through a scrapbook with my daughter
to realize my son still wants giant hugs
to laugh until I’m coughing so hard I cannot breathe
…because it’s the little things in a day that make a lifetime of memories.
