Day Fifteen

In line at the grocery store
a quick errand to find dinner
turns into an epic drama

My children are screaming
grabbing fistfuls of candy

A young couple behind me glares
The elderly lady in front me counts out her change
I sigh with annoyance

A deep breath in and out
The gift of gratitude emerges

For my children who do not want

A lesson in why sex can wait

Small change counts for something

Life breath that fills my lungs.
