Find one beautiful thing every day and take a photo of it.
Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
Beauty Day 71 Blood Pressure
I’m paranoid about blood pressure
my mom was on a million pills before she died
I watched her sleep her life away
blood pressure pills among them
I’ll die of cause wide awake
but they scare you with the blood pressure thing
and they pursue you
and make you get a double check
every time you go for a simple office visit
my own machine shows wide variations
in an upward-leaning graph
so I bit the bullet
convinced I needed medication
it’s for the kids I said
so they wouldn’t have to deal with
this resignation must have calmed my nerves
’cause when I had it checked today–
a jig a song and a wild Hallelujia!
right there in the parking lot
free of meddlesome pills
for at least another day
