A chance conversation with a stranger
leads to both of us feeding the Hungry Cup on the sidewalk
A smile on my face, returned
by someone else
leads to just that – our grins
The new couple on the block
passed by with their
which led me indoors to
appreciate our lazy cat a bit more
The phone call from an old friend
that was actually a text, but quite effective
A prayer answered, the one you didn’t know you needed
Unexpected blessings are the whole point

For ABC Wednesday, the letter U. I must admit, that letter prompted a poem about Ugly, Ubiquitous trUmp, but I thought better of it.
Concentrating on those blessings each day. Trying to get the hang of happiness.

Awesome, Amy, and yes! one never knows when something will happen that will give you an ‘unexpected blessing’. Hope you are well.
