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 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.
