Day 7. The cupboard of abundance

The sky is blue, the sea is calm
Seabirds scavenge shellfish on the shore
A beautiful beach to roam, 
A comfy house to call home
How could I want for more?

50 years of marriage 
Loving sons and daughter-in-laws
Gorgeous grandkids to love
Lifelong friends with shared memories

Oranges and lemons on the trees
Food in the pantry 
Fresh vegetables in the garden
Fish in the sea.

Self determination means accepting my faults 
For without them how could I appreciate my strengths
And have the freedom to live out my dreams,
To be the person I am meant to be.

This is the true abundance of my life.
Rich indeed am I.
