The Letter

i got a letter the other day

i didn’t read it until today

sometimes i have to be

at the right place in my mind

to receive the words from

my friend so kind..

this one did it for me today

her words of kindness

had much to say..

from one whom

has had a hard life

but you wouldn’t know..

it brought tears to my eyes

because it was heaven sent.

positivity from my friend so kind

when i know in fact her world is not..

much to be glum about

but she is not.

reminding me to love

and be thankful for those that do..

to look for the good and for animals too

that are in our care on planet earth..

so a reminder to me

to not murmur nor complain..

be a light in this world

that seems as though

it is losing it’s glimmer

thank you friend for coming along

and sending me a lovely letter..

With a Song in My Heart

When this time of year approaches, I find myself humming my favorite songs. I do sing to, but my raspy voice, and little frogs, get wedged in my vocal cords, or something. Therefore, what I hear is not always pleasant, but I do know, is that it comes from my heart. I am so very grateful, that we, the children of that time frame, had the opportunity to learn about music, in song. It contributed to my enthusiasm for listening to music and singing along. We had chorus back in those days, and I looked forward to it. I share this today, with croaky voice and heartfelt wishes for a Merry Christmas!
