Simple Gifts

a call from a friend
a hug from my daughter
a book from my husband
     because he remembers I prefer them to flowers
a scripture like "come unto me"
a day to finally be over a cold 
     and be able to taste sweet things again (like birthday cake)
a good laugh with my sister
and a good cry for gratitude
     for kindness and love, forgiveness and joy
     for the simple gift of life.
