goodness is…

Today, life caught me off guard. It taught me a lesson; it humbled me. And when I picked myself up off the floor, I was reminded of all of life’s goodnesses that are often unseen when peering through dense, gray storm clouds.
Goodness Is…
open-mouthed, slobbery baby kisses
coming home to a clean house
a boss who listens and understands
believing in a love that never fails
empathy instead of sympathy
a single glass of red wine and a slice of specialty cheese
hope for a fresh tomorrow
a hot home-cooked meal
admitting you can’t do everything
