The Joy of Living

These are a few of my favorite things:

Big dogs and coffee and little white diasies;
Dinner that he fixed and time to be lazy;
Rainbows and cut grass and my wedding ring;
These are a few of my favorite things.

Tall trees that are old and warm socks on my feet;
Hugs from my children and perfumes that smell sweet;
Comfort and kisses that my husband brings;
These are a few of my favorite things.

Bookstores and laughter and long-lasting friendships;
Family and silence and good nacho cheese dips;
Romantic movies and cool days in Spring;
These are a few of my favorite things.

When the flu hits
When their words sting
When I hate my ass
I simply remember my favorite things
And know that this too shall pass.


  1. Some very good favorite things.

  2. Love this! Thanks so much for the song to wake up to! LOL

  3. Good poem! Everyone should write one of these for themselves that they can sing in their head when they're having a bad moment. I love having little triggers that I can use to change my mood from a bad one to a good one. So simple if we can remember to do it :)


Thank you for sharing!
