The Good Life

This is the good life.  A cup of hot coffee, brushing the cat on the front porch.

This is the good life.  Falling into bed at night, exhausted from a long day of work… missions accomplished and customers happy.

This is the good life.  Peeling potatoes, setting the table, getting ready for a birthday celebration with family.

This is the good life.  Showing up Sunday morning to a church building full of friendly and familiar faces, the ones you know are there for you, come rain or come shine.

This is the good life.  Putting rolls of dimes and quarters, and eventually stacks of dollar bills into a savings account, dreaming of something wonderful for the future.

This is the good life.  Watching a four year old ride a tricycle.

This is the good life.  Cutting dandelions out of the front yard, just to stand back and say it looks better that way.

This is the good life.  Marrying someone who loves you with all their heart, doing everything you can to be their very best friend.

This is the good life.  The calm, day in and day out rhythm of just being here, enjoying the moment.

Young people… please grab this brass ring!  Well, you probably don’t even know what that means.  But this is the prize!  I’m living the good life, and it’s right here for the taking.  Grab it!

    So true! Thank you, Sandy, for putting it into words. (But the bears in Alaska would love to have those dandelions…Supposedly they love dandelions!) Hope you don’t mind I “liked” this on my Facebook page.

    My dandelion patch is a delightful reminder that I’ll never go hungry!
