What I know


Guest Heart Thursday

I know no one gets the life they planned
for so many reasons, some out of my control
some choices I've made along the way
but I can embrace the one I have
and move forward from there

I know my day can be improved
with a call from a friend, just because
a baby's laugh
finding the chocolate bar I forgot was in my work bag
more hours of sun than gray skies
a college football game

I know life is too short
for bad tea
to not take the time to read for fun
to wait to do what I've always wanted
to not tell someone they do great work
to not ask for help or not offer help

I know I love
to travel
meet new people and learn cultures
drive fun cars - fast when possible
a bunch of flowers
a good Broadway type show
family and friends - near and far

I know it's important
to have something welcoming on the front door
even when everyone enters the home through the back door.

Amen.It's so important to take the time to appreciate the things in our lives that make us happy! What a wonderful poem!

And an equally wonderful heart to come home to!

Wow, that's a beautiful post, both picture and words! I love the color of your door, and the decoration will make anyone who comes to it feel very welcome. And thanks for the reminder that life is too short for bad decisions!

<3 So important to do what you want and not what the people around you want you to do. Love the heart on your door!
