Sniffing a bouquet of pretty, pink peonies, And sitting after twilight watching fireflies glow. I AM SO GRATEFUL forrepparttar "good stuff" life is made up of. Receiving an unexpected pay raise at work, Running into an old acquaintance by chance, Throwing a Frisbee for my dog onrepparttar 144584 run, And sending flowers to a friend for no reason. I AM SO GRATEFUL for gentle sounds. The rippling gurgle of a flowing brook, A miniature chime tinkling inrepparttar 144585 wind, A tranquilizing purr from a contented cat, And baby's first word tickling me pink. I AM SO GRATEFUL for contemplating stillness. Whenrepparttar 144586 birds become still And a dog's barking stops And a downpour ends And a baby's crying ceases.
