My triumph today was all about smiles, both mine and my kids’. See, it’s been a rough day. It started early when my car died on the way to work. *sigh* Luckily, I have a pretty awesome coworker who came to pick me up and a husband who had the day off and was able to get my car back on the road.

I also have something delicious cooking in the kitchen. 😉

Apparently Cricket had a hard day, too. Bubbles beat him at football and refused a rematch due to dark and cold conditions. Luckily, Miss Tadpole had a fluffy bunny with which to cheer him up:

And now that all is well with the world (or at least with my kids), I’m off to enjoy a nice and hopefully relaxing evening at home. Have a great weekend!

Brighter Days

It’s National Poetry Month! If you’re new here, I post a poem a day during the month of April in celebration of poetry because I love it so very, very much. Here, then, is today’s poem:

Like the sun,
Your smile has gone,
And like the sky,
My heart weeps.
Bitter tears fall like rain
As I mourn your loss.

But like the rain,
My tears will one day end.
Like the sun,
The memory of your smile
Will brighten my days
Until we meet again.
