With the tune playing incessantly in my mind for the past week, I came up with a list of my favorite things. Although I don't think about them when the dog barks or when the bee stings, I do think on these when I'm feeling stressed or overwhelmed, and as Maria sings, then I don't feel so bad.
I thought of trying to write this so that it would follow the meter of Rogers and Hammerstein but, um, yeah, they were masters of their craft, so I'll just cut to the chase.
Raindrops on just about anything, I love the little prisms they become reflecting mini rainbows as the sunlight filters through them.
Grapefruit. Next to raspberries they are my number two favorite fruit. Unfortunately, due to a prescription I'm currently taking, I haven't been able to enjoy even one this year, I'm going to have to talk to Doc King about this.
Flowers. They are perfect in every way. And who doesn't brighten up when given a flower?
A full moon. I miss my evening walks that Dog and I used to take, I'm not brave enough to venture out by my self, too many things that go bump in the night out here on the ranch.
An empty, windy road. I dream of being the driver they always mention in the disclaimer on car commercials: Professional driver on a closed course, do not attempt.
Clouds. From below or above, it doesn't matter, they intrigue me. I should become a meteorologist.
I have many other favorite things, most dealing with nature but my most favorite thing is not a thing at all. It's the little body and personality that belong to these two little feet.
I'd like to know, what are some of your favorite things? I really would because you see, in blogging my MOST favorite thing is reading your comments, they make me smile and bring me joy.
