Simple pleasures….


I found myself running

With my dog in the snow

Genuinely smiling

I am happy

There is so much peace

In this winter land

Which I never expected

My face is glowing

I am so well now

Who knew this could exist?

I didn’t ….

And yes there are moments when I must take a deep breath

But I do, and I move on….

I am surviving….

I am healing….

In every step I take

And there is grace in my eyes

When I look in the mirror

As the bruises fade away

I know I am now safe

And I know I’ve done well

The best that I could

Given the odds

The lemons in my hands

Are bitter sweet

And yet I will sleep

So much more soundly
