There are days when I wake,
and I am so cross with life.
Even before I get out of bed,
I am irritated by everyone and everything.
Today it could be raining,
and most of what I do going badly,
and yet inside I would still be singing.
Why? I do not know,
it is how I felt since waking.
Imagine if we could discover,
what exactly makes us feel this way.
If we knew how to wake with a happy heart.
Today I look around,
and I do not see,
that not one of my children,
has done anything I have asked them to do.
Instead I see,
my four children,
healthy and happy,
lazing around together,
enjoying each others company.
Today I do not see my husband,
painting the fence,
exactly the color I did not want,
Instead I see the man who has been by my side,
for most of my life,
through the good and the bad.
Today I do not see the mountain of ironing,
the full washing baskets,
and the dirty dishes left in every room.
Instead I see the house we fell in love with,
and the home it has become.
Today for some reason,
I have a different view of life.
Today I am able to see,
past the mundane and the boring.
Today I can see how good life is.
Today is just one of those days!
