Taking One Bite Out Of My Day


It Is The Special Moments That Count

Putting all the pieces together to make it work

The alarm clock goes off

I quickly shut it off

Rolling back into bed

My wife saving the day

Talking to me

I suddenly realized I have to get up

I have to go to work

Eating blueberries with cereal seems like a simple thing to do

By the third bite the blueberries taste old

Like they were starting to turn bad

There is a taste about them

Almost like strawberries if they start to go moldy

They looked o.k.

Instead of throwing them out

I moved them around with a little more milk

To mask the taste

They won't kill me

I really love blueberries

Off to work soon

Not much new to say

I worked a long shift yesterday

I have put so many days under my belt

I am starting to look like Santa Claus

All of a sudden

I am running late

My wife reminds me no speeding

Half done but the best I can at this moment

Someday I will look back and laugh

Looking at these times as special and bright

Mona Sabalones Gonzalez Being happy trying to combine all the things in a day. A wonderful mix, we never get just right but it doesn't stop us from trying. Doing what we know and sometimes attempting what we don't. That is living on the wild side for me. Thank you so much for all your comments. I hope to keep you smiling even after your cheeks hurt. Have a nice Sunday.

Love this poem. It's true, it's the small things like cereal and being late that we will look back at and smile.
