i mowed the lawn yesterday.
the same lawn .
i mowed as a kid.
i have always, always loved this task.
i tried to remember,
what it was i would have been thinking about
riding around this yard.
what movie my boyfriend and i were going to go see?
why does my sister wears my clothes?
i need to study for that test on monday.
the yard was much more open then.
there are many more obstacles to go around.
in the yard.
and in my mind.
kids, bills, work.
so much more to go through my mind.
as i go around this yard.
the same happy, contented feeling i had back then.
is still with me today.
this is my happy place.
and the breath goes in and out.
and i can smile.
because at the end of the day.
the simple task of mowing the lawn makes me happy.
and no matter what obstacles are in my way.
right at this moment...
they don't matter.
welcome to coffee hour.
welcome to this Sunday morning.
