a good day

It's a good day that has home-made foxes in it…

and other sweet, hand-crafted gifts—
made and given with love.

It's a good day that has

gluten-free pancakes with yoghurt and strawberries in it…

(not to mention baked potatoes and
fruit salad with mangoes and pineapple for lunch
and vegetarian lasagne for dinner…
did we ever stop eating?)

It's a great day that has a beach visit in it…

with laughing boogie boarders and contemplative little girls…

not to mention sandcastle cats!

It's a wonderful day that has
this many hugs in it
and this much laughter
and excitement
and togetherness
and joy.

I hope you had a good,
fine day

filled inside and out,
with love.
