Sunday With April

Although it was a wild and wooly week, I did make myself stop from looking inside my pain to notice what is beautiful around me.

This is some of what made me smile:

  • The laughter coming from a party down the street
  • The bubbles the dish soap makes while washing dishes
  • I did vote. We found a parking spot, we didn’t have to wait long, and I pushed all the buttons I wanted to push
  • The feel of the floor on my bare feet after a good, hard scrubbing *edit…the floors getting the hard scrub, I think I could have worded that better*
  • Ibuprofen
  • When a gentle breeze releases the dying leaves from their stronghold and gently float to the earth…..a gentle leaf shower
  • Waking up at 6:30 am and not hearing a sound. No cars, no dogs barking, just silence
  • The little growly sound my grand puppy makes when she plays
  • The neighbor’s lawn maintenance man blowing the leaves from our front yard–which is funny because by the end of the day it won’t look like he did a thing
  • Fellow bloggers

I hope you find something to make you smile this week.

About April

I'll come back to this when I find out who I really am. I've been through some extremely rough patches but they have made me a better person. I blog if my brain is functioning first thing in the morning.
