A cold north wind is hurrying toward the bluff.
Giving thanks for all I have today…
Mate, daughter, son, grandson, family and friends to count;
And more…rainwater for herbs, feathery-white pelicans floating
on Nueces Bay, black fluffy cat grooming in a chair, flour for baking, music,
strength for running, courage for living, happy hearts and hugs,
connection with the world, purpose for the day,
words to write, memories in scattered black and white,
sunlight sliding through my kitchen window,
moonlight on the bay at night,
laughter, tears and life.
