Life Feels Better

Sometimes life throws a curve ball that knock us off our feet. Sometimes we get up right away, wipe the dust off and continue on.  Other times, it's not so easy.  Sometimes the curve ball hits us hard and knocks our breath out, making it difficult to move, to think, to feel.  And yet, life goes on.  Eventually, we do manage to breathe again, to feel again...to realize that there is light at the end of the tunnel...life does go on and the heart does heal.  And today, for me, life sure feels better.

Life Feels Better

Life seems better than before,
every day the sun shines more;
past is past, best to ignore,
think of peace and sweet rapport.
Just step outside, go explore,
find the beauty, I implore!
See the mountains, or the shore,
watch a lone bird float and soar;
sunrise, sunset ~ stop, adore;
Everywhere such gifts galore...
Oh yes, life feels much better than before!
