A friend of mine recently posted a list of
"What Makes Me Feel Normal"
on a day that she felt out of sorts.
(In no particular order)
Opening one of my Dr Seuss books;
and reading like it is the first time.
Wooden clothes pins,
wet laundry on a clothesline;
middle of summer.
Painting my toenails "Summer Purple".
Laughing on the phone
with family and friends.
Receiving snail mail;
personal postcards, small boxes and letters!
Dusting off my
grade school/high school yearbooks
and smiling at our hair.
Playing with the
wedding ring on my finger
in a ray of sunlight.
Sitting outside with a breeze on my face,
reading with a radio on nearby.
Rubbing the belly
of either of our cats.
Holding John's hand.
