Feeling Thankful

I woke up this morning and
pondered way too loud.

Will today be clear and sunny,
or like a nimbus cloud?

All of a sudden I realized,
this wasn't important at all.

In the big picture altogether,
this one thought seemed so small.

I thought then of my children,
and a smile came to my face.

The sentiment of my memories,
took me to a higher place.

Their funny little antics and
endless questions,
Mommy, why?

Had me laughing quite hysterically,

I began to cry.

I thanked God for my fortune,
and decided then and there.

Whether or not
rained or shined,

I did not really care.
