So what makes me happy? What makes me smile?
I paused to consider and thought for a while.
I dreamed of adventures! Perhaps a spa break?
A massage! A haircut! all manner of CAKE!!
I thought about shopping and sparkly new things,
Like beautiful handbags and huge diamond rings.
But mostly I found, When it came to the test,
The smallest of things are the things I like best.
Like that magical moment I climb into bed,
And my pillow gives way to the squish of my head!
Like walks in the forest or lunch by a lake
(I’m sorry – my mind somehow drifted to cake?)
Like Saturday night watching crap on TV,
With a huge mucky pizza, just hubby and me.
It’s looking for squirrels and feeding the birds.
Or seeing my boy get to grips with new words.
It’s blogging – much more than a want, it’s a NEED!
A passion to write and to share and to read.
It’s friends, that just “get” me and don’t have to try,
As we waffle away and the hours drift by,
We kick back with coffee, and…
(Oops. My mistake….
My rhyme must have drifted? We’ve slipped back to cake?)
I gave it my best to be clear and concise,
As I thought a small list might be rather more nice,
But try as I might, I can’t pick three or four,
I think of a few things… then think of some more:
My boy, as he reaches and asks for a hug.
A hot cup of tea in my favourite mug.
Miss Tot when she tells me “I wuff you so much!”
The wonderful hubby, the warmth in his touch.
My two precious tots and the love that they give,
The great friends and family I spend my life with.
These are the treasures I won’t give away.
The things I depend on to get through each day.
The rest of my pleasures are really quite small,
The simplest things are the best things of all.
Just strawberry ice cream or soft fluffy socks.
My tots, a small stream,
…and a handful of rocks!
