Really nice poem. Glad to see you able to acknowledge your sadness and still think of happy or cheerful things.

My favourite things?

hearing a purr while petting a cat
stretching and relaxing on my yoga mat
myself being held with the joy it can bring
these are a few of my favourite things

Ohh! and
untroubled worlds with cartoon ponies
cold days kept warm by fleecy onsies

I'm not even going to try to do the SoM song, as much as I love a good musical number... But here you go!

My Favourite Things

Lukewarm tea at 5am
Singing in the car with a friend
The wobble of a canoe in the middle of a lake
and the moment when your hand dips under the water when you are paddling along
Long, meandering conversations you can get lost in


Winding someone up
My prs guitar
Traveling with my best friend
Skateboards and swing sets

When my husband gets home from work and hugs me and says "Hey, Sparky, how was your day?"

Building a fire
Moments when being with my kids is easy
Vegetarian sushi, coconut anything, raspberries
Inside jokes

Sleeping in a tent
Sleeping in a tent in the rain
Sleeping in a tent in the winter
Adventure Time

Talking to people
Spending time with people
Laughing at myself
Farmers markets

Jumping into an ice cold lake on a summer day

Feeling ok with who I am
Finding people who are ok with it too
Sorting laundry

Baking challah when I'm really emotionally scattered and feeling myself coming back together

Playing soccer

Sometimes life gets so heavy
It's easy to forget the lightness in every day
But it's always there
I just need to remind myself to look up
And see it
