An hour long chat with a friend I haven’t talked to in awhile.
Walking and walking until your legs burn as you push on another mile.
Painting in the evening while listening to moving Classical music and the silence of the house.
Wondering a package’s whereabouts.
A drive in the dark.
Watching the fire and the wind and the sparks
The feel of coffee on my tongue
The chilly morning air in my lungs
The warmth of a fuzzy blanket on a chilly morning
The moment where you stare at the ceiling and truly embrace boring.
Puppy kisses against your face
A moment to breathe in your own space
Baby skin so soft and smooth
The moment before you decide to get up and move
Loose joints after a good stretch
Seeing your improvement and feeling encouraged for the next
Hunger pains after days and days
Of not wanting anything and being afraid
Hot cement underneath raw feet
Chocolate that is so incredibly sweet
Minutes and seconds that aren’t felt
Candles and fragrance that is smelt.
Rain dancing against the roof
Sunshine spilling in as proof
Living, because why not continue
What God has begun?
Living, because each moment is sweeter
Than the drop before
Living, because that’s an opportunity
You won’t let slip through the door.
Easy to over look,
Easy to forget
It’s the little things of life
That makes it worth living.
Close your eyes and notice all the noise around you.
Today is today
Tomorrow hasn’t come.
The future is unknown
But the moment is owned.
So fill it, feel it, live it.
And let it move on.
