I love the sound of birdsong that wakes me every morning.
I love the sound of water that is travelling over rocks,
or the sound of rain as it falls, whispering into the air.
I love watching my plants bloom, as they grow into themselves
and give me the gift of their beauty.
I love the unapologetic sound of children laughing,
a pure and unfiltered sound that is like music.
I love the smell of coffee in the morning that signals
the beginning of a new day that is full of treasures.
I love the end of a day as I reflect on everything I’ve done
and the dreams I may have on my nighttime journey.
I love the smell of a new book that is full of knowledge
and the scent of an adventure yet to come.
I love the sound of a song that I remember in my heart
because it was with me on significant part of my journey.
I love the feeling of grass underneath my feet.
I love the soft rasp of sand between my toes.
I love finding something so funny that laughter bursts out of me.
I love the emotion that fills me when I hear the words, I love you.
I love watching birds fly along through the sky,
and being left to wonder where their journey will take them.
I love exploring some place new and unknown to me,
whether it be a new country or a place close to home I have never seen before.
I love sharing time with friends and family and the closeness we share.
I love the time spent with my husband, time that can be spent doing nothing,
filled with conversation or the sweet sound of comfortable silence.
I love the scent of cooking or the heady scent of baking as it fills my home.
I love that love can be such a simple thing,
or bigger than the mountains and the oceans.
I love my life and the path that I’m on that has brought me to this very moment.
