I love . . .

I love the cool breeze after a long hot day.

I love not having to leave when I’d much rather stay.

I love the sound of children when they are busy at play,

Spending their days without strife.

I love waking up early with not four kids but one

Giving us the chance for some secret fun.

I love laying down for a nap when my work is done.

I love being my husband’s wife.

I love sharing my words with friends old and new.

I love honest answers to “How do you do?”

I love games like Monopoly, Scrabble and Clue

But most of all I love my life!




10 things I love, inspired by an idea passed along by Jingle, that poet and blogger extraordinaire. The idea is to write about ten things you love and tag ten people to follow suit. If you want some examples, please click on the links from Jingle’s post or be creative on your own! I texted myself this poem while lying in bed last night after a long and beautiful day. I was inspired by this song by Tom T. Hall which I first heard on my grandparents’ stereo console and also by the most perfect day I had yesterday from beginning to end with my family and friends. I love you all! Share the love!
