Today I was asked to think about
what my heart needs
That sacred space within that is
the source of my being 
God-breathed inspiration
The welling up of tears of effervecent joy
The calm stillness of inner peace and 
the assurance that I am loved
People to love in return
Places to make a difference
Times to feel like Ebenezer Scrooge
on Christmas morning and cry out
“Life doesn’t get any better than this!”
Times to say
“For life and ALL that goes with it
Thank you”
