Some of My Favorite Things
~by Laurie Kolp
A newborn baby swaddled while asleep
Butterfly kisses on my nose or cheek
The hands of my children reaching for me
Praying to God even when I’m not weak.
Thoughtfulness from my husband so dear-
Flowers, dinner or chores done for me.
A card from a friend when I’m full of fear
Helping someone who’s struggling to be free.
Candles, cardinals and puppy dog kisses
Apples, white chocolate and broccoli with cheese;
Peach tea in the hot summer and coffee mixes,
I find pure joy in each of these.
