There are a lot of things that are not going right.
With Murphy working overtime and PMS doing its bit,
life has been pretty miserable.
Until this morning…
When I received an SMS from someone I consider worthwhile
with news that is more than worthwhile
and then a little later,
as I sat on the 17th floor of an otherwise boring building,
a parrot came flying by and sat on the window sill.
Life doesn’t seem so bad at all.
it feels beautiful.
Where the sadness fades
And sunshine breaks through
And life smiles
for me and for you.
That is all it takes.
Just one moment.
