How do you find the courage
To move beyond the day-to-day
To embrace things that open your heart in a special way.
The blessings and the magic does abound
It comes to me through the light and sound.
of the furnace
as it cuts in to give me warmth
with the hum of the refrigerator
(footsteps of the family climbing up the stairs
bring joys to me of which they are unaware)
adding the sound of the traffic on the street
as the opening of the concert.
The pelting rain now begins
the sound of the wind
in the pine.
The thunder joins in the chorus
inviting his partner
Madam Lightening to be her brazen self.
I enjoy basking
in the sounds
of the moments of a spring day.
Leaving thoughts of the income tax filing,
budgets, time schedules and cares on the shelf.
How do you count your blessings
Do you begin with the fact you are alive
and have the challenges you have created.
Or are you stuck in the sorrow
and loss of things not anticipated
The attitude of gratitude
can move you into action
To count your blessings anyway
Even when not every thing is to your satisfaction.
Start counting up your blessings
In a moment you will see
The cares will not be so heavy weighing you down
You can be happy, joyous and free.
