August 21, 2019-
An invitation came in the mail.
It was to the wedding of the youngest child
of one of my best friends.
Quickly, and joyfully, I replied,
An invitation came, on my phone messenger.
It was to a college event, on Friday.
I quickly responded,
“Certainly, if I’m not working that day.”
A call came for a Red Cross meeting, today.
I cleared my calendar,
and drove over to the site.
We got a fair amount accomplished.
A caterpillar was inching its way
across the road.
I said. “Good luck to you”.
It kept on its way.
As I sat, watching the sunset,
atop Acker Hill, yesterday evening,
a lone jogger came by and said,
“Isn’t that a great scene?”
I said, “Positively!”
My neighbour said, “I’m moving out!”
I replied, “Sorry to hear that.
Hope it’ll work better at your next place.”
A school sent a request for my presence, tomorrow.
I said, “Amen!”
All this, alone, is reason enough to get out of bed,
and dedicate the day’s praise,
to honouring what lies in store.
