Day 17,024: Thank Goodness

It's been a day spent trying to register my daughter for college orientation
And gathering documents to pare down a 30-year mortgage to 15
Add a lunch hour appointment with a mighty thorough dental hygienist
And in between the usual work to which I must attend each day
The bright spot toward the end of it, my reward, was this place
A grande soy latte and a couple of sweet, peaceful hours spent
At a weathered table under the outstretched arms of the softest fir tree
With a wise friend who makes me laugh, relax and wonder
Thank goodness for priorities and connections such as these
To help me keep my perspective and my train on its tracks
