"...Where troubles melt like lemon drops
High above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me..."
- Over The Rainbow
In my car,
hand out the window and my hair whipping in the wind
singing to the radio
On the beach,
having sand between my toes and my skin crusty with salt
searching for treasures
swimming with fish
walking on a trail with the sound of crunching leaves under my feet
being on a boat...any boat...anywhere
feeling the warm sun on my face
capturing beauty in a picture
In my kitchen,
discussing the day with Megan and John
sharing a good meal and bottle of wine with family and friends
noticing the 'fairy dust' in the sunlight coming through the window
talking with a friend
overhearing kids laugh and shriek in another room
In my backyard,
walking barefoot through the grass
smelling basil, chives, lavender...
swinging on a tire swing
listening to the sound of frogs and crickets at night
combing lavender plants with my fingers
if I am...
realizing what is truly important
understanding most of my troubles aren't really as big as I think they are
Where are you when your troubles melt like lemon drops?
Thank you for stopping by!
Have a great day!
