Loving Life!

When I was asked, "What makes your life poetic?" I was taken back.  Hmmm...what a wonderful question.  As I started pondering, I realized that there were many answers to this question.

As a mature, active, curious, mindful and compassionate person, I find that life is filled with joy, beauty and awe, if we but take the time to experience these wonderful gifts.  Each morning as I rise, I face the East and give thanks for another day.  I know that no matter what, this day is unique and offers me more opportunities to love and be loved.

My children and grandchildren are certainly muses in my life.  They challenge, inspire and bless me in ways they will never know.

My love - Roger - makes my life poetic as well as filled with song.  How wonderful is it to wake every morning to someone who cherishes you, brings you tea, plays music for you to wake to so that your day begins well?  To me, this is the GOOD life!

Add to all this, the joys of family, friends and a world so filled with wonder that it constantly takes my breath away.  I never tire of watching sunrises or sunsets, counting the stars, watching the flowers bloom or sitting with my cat.

Yes, life is good...no, let me correct that...Life is GREAT!
