The Perfect Day by Alice N. Persons

You wake with
no aches
in the arms
of your beloved
to the smell of fresh coffee
you eat a giant breakfast
with no thought
of carbs
there is time to read
with a purring cat on your lap
later you walk by the ocean
with your dog
on this cut crystal day
your favorite music and the sun
fill the house
a short delicious nap
under a fleece throw
comes later
and the phone doesn’t ring
at dusk you roast a chicken,
bake bread, make an exquisite
chocolate cake
for some friends
you’ve been missing
someone brings you an
unexpected present
and the wine is just right with the food
after a wonderful party
you sink into sleep
in a clean nightgown
in fresh sheets
your sweetheart doesn’t snore
and in your dreams
an old piece of sadness
lifts away

Can’t recall from which movie, I heard this conversation:
Woman: Should I forgive him?
Man: Are you happy now?
Woman: Very.
Man: Then it is the time to be generous…

For me, it also implys that when you are happy, you could forgive yourself more generously, and you could accept imperfection more easily. After all, everything balanced out at the end.

I know I have been slacking lately. But there are really too many things going on at work and home. I’m exhausted. TGIF!!!

Have a nice weekend, everyone! I hope next week will be a better one for all of us!
