A quick post on a busy day of school and work, but I thought I’d leave you with a poem that’s been making me really happy as of late:
At lunchtime I bought a huge orange-
The size of it made us all laugh
I peeled it and shared it with Robert and Dave-
They got quarters, and I had a half.
And that orange, it made me so happy,
As ordinary things often do
Just lately. The shopping. A walk in the park.
This is peace and contentment. It’s new.
The rest of the day was quite easy.
I did all the jobs on my list
And enjoyed them and had some time over.
I love you. I’m glad I exist.
It’s pretty easy for me to get caught up in life and school and think about negative things, yet, I do get to come home every night to the most amazing man. He is supportive and thoughtful in ways I never dreamed someone could be. And for that, I am grateful. We are lucky to have each other.
5 day week at school this week, I’m nearly there!
