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.
