Stream of Thought

I’m so lucky for

marshmallows, sunshine, cloudy days, pattering rain, william, kisses, handshakes, friends, french fries, the color green, good music, happy thoughts, true love, warm socks, funny slippers, pretty yarn, a lovely mother, my little nose, a big diamond ring, ribbon, late nights, metal rulers, sharp scissors, glitter, plane rides, the perfect dress, a comfy bed, my stuffed animals, pecan floors, church pews, bubble wrap, demolition, reconstruction, a really tall dryer, big desks, pigtails, best friends, good music, diet coke, you.

Why are you lucky?
