Buoyant Soul

I should have been doing laundry. There was a pile of dishes in the sink. I had mail piling up on the counter I had gone through in days. I needed to eat dinner but I didn't have time to cook. I ate a few spoonfuls of ice cream and headed out the door. I had to see her.

She was the only good thing that emerged from 2016. A blessing for her parents as well as myself.

She makes me feel as though I have a buoyant soul.

The weight of the world disappears. My list of chores is forgotten. I stop struggling to keep my head above water and just float.

She cries, she gets fussy, she has just the right amount of mischief in her eyes. She has filled my heart with so much joy and appreciation.
