My Day

 
I am grateful for my time alone,
Today it has rained a bout ten times,
the sun managing to peek its head above the horizon.
It has been teasing us all day.
Because fo the rain everything is a beautiful fresh green,
The smell of the dirt, I so long to feel the warmth as I play.
I watch the community alive with the planting of flowers,
the scents of food grilling has wafted by
reminding my senses that soon I must eat.
As I am typing a squirrel has just scurried its way to the birdfeeder,
they are quite entertaining as they knock the food to the ground for some of the others..
I thought today about my Dad how he loved to watch the birds and the squirrels.
He would be so thrilled to see his oldest grandchild enjoying the same things.
I have some of the bird bools from my Dad so when I get back home I will send them to my nephew.
It makes me happy to know that as these children have grown,
that they take the time to appreciate their surroundings and that they know all the gifts that are right here.
I am my fathers daughter. If he were here with me he would be thinking the same.
So today I am very grateful for the day, new memories and being reminded of the old.
I hope you  enjoy your day.I have no idea why this picture is on here twice.
