What A Sensational Day

Updated on January 17, 2014

From Beginning To End

There are so many things to be thankful for

Today moved to the top of my list

It started out like an ordinary day

Errands to run and a few appointments

Now the day is winding down some fourteen hours later

All I can do is smile about how well the day went

Each turn seemed to fall into place

Every step welcomed the next step graciously

I know the rest of the world couldn't be so lucky

But if there was a way I would love to pass this day along

When we got hungry we ate and are appetites where more than satisfied

Not about the amount of food or the price

Just about enjoying our meals together and having a little snack too

We traveled all over and gassed up when needed

We both stopped for haircuts and now we feel so much better

Had our car serviced and after a few necessary repairs

Then went driving off to the wild blue yonder

Stopping at different stores to look around

Buying a few necessities and a few other things that perked our interest

Meeting a stranger and trading stories of long ago

Then coming home to settle in

That doesn't mean our day has ended

My wife cooking a home cooked meal and making her lunch for tomorrow

I am doing laundry and getting into a nice refreshing shower

I took the time and planted a few things around the house for my wife to find

Little extra gifts because she is on my mind

Looking forward to a little television and relax time

The weather was not warm but it was cool enough to feel alive and well

Now I can say it many times and enjoy every feeling even more

Coming home to our cat when all she wants is to be rubbed

Is a fine ending to my story

      billybuc It's not what you have but how you enjoy your time and the people you love. I am so blessed to be healthy and able to enjoy my day. I appreciate your kind comment and seeing your visit makes my day even brighter. Starting from the inside out. Nellieanna Another special feeling of gratitude runs through my body like a sled flying down a slippery slope thanks to you. Gypsy Rose Lee When I come close to animals and see their unconditional love my day explodes with so many good thoughts. I am sure Sid is so excited to see you and is beaming with love. Thank you everyone for reading another one of my stoems story/poems.

      I agree when all is said and done I just need to cuddle my cat Sid and see his contented face and hear him purr. Always ends each day on a great note.

      That is, indeed, a fine story! It proves that enjoying the everyday things as they're happening is what makes for the happiest times - continuously!

      The way you expressed it is truly beautiful, my friend. I smiled all the way through it, sharing those precious moments made up of living and loving it! Hugs.
