The Joys of Living

Taking the time to smell the flowers,
Counting smiles instead of hours,
Delighting in the simplest things,
Letting all your thought have wings.

Feeling peaceful deep inside,

Learning all along the way.

Moving towards a dream or goal,
Nurturing your heart and soul,
Understanding true success,
Choosing love and happiness.

Showing others that you care,
Finding beauty everywhere,
Knowing all you gain in giving –
Welcome to the joys of living.

Emily Matthews.
