She sifted through the remnants of the day…

“Today” she thought. What is so special about today?

The woman child who is asleep at her boyfriends not too far from home

The mother who is finally present after all these years

The brother who checks in often….and dips out too

The sister she found late in life

The friends

The love

The stranger who complimented her when she hasn’t felt good about herself in months and asked why she seemed so sad

The sun on her skin and the cool wind that chilled her

The neighbor lady who hugged her and exchanged kind words

Life is special…today is special….every day and every part of it is special, if you choose to see it.
