Birds Eye View

Well today I am trying not to take life so seriously.
Sometimes I forget how simple things are.
I  just need to sit back and take a look around to see how blessed I am.
Today I am grateful for,,,,
the breeze blowing through my windows,
the birds singing outside
the buzz  in the neighborhood,
the elderly man that walks by every morning,
the hot coffee waiting for me,
the note on the kitchen table that says I love you.
my dog waiting anxiously at my back door,
the sun shining brighter than any other day,
the hint of new buds on the trees,
the happiness in my heart,
the sense to make healthy choices.,
for the understanding
that I am perfect
just how I am.
Today is 
as it 
should be..
I hope you have a great day.
What are you grateful for today.
I would love to hear them.
Have a great day.
