Little hands squeezing

my neck hello,

” UP” she yells

she is my happiness

for now, today.

Happiness is fleeting.

But gratitude is a

different thing than

bestowing happiness, dear Santa.

Gratitude requires

the grace to accept

something meant to help,

like groceries from

my neighbors or

the mowing of my lawn

because I can no longer

push a mower.

A simple thank you will suffice.

    1. It was my pleasure. Not everyone will admit to scream laughing. It is along the lines of “I spit my coffee” or a laugh snort. A genuine find you are:) It was so early in the morning here I was worried you would be late to work. I forgot cyber space means possibly being on the other side of the world. The Silent Sentinel says he will try to make a drawing for us. Giggle. Thanks for the great conversation.BIG HUGS!
