Taking Inventory

No earthquakes here today or brush fires. 

Cricket in the fireplace didn’t keep me up. 

Bread on the counter seems still fresh.

 No friend called with a cancer diagnosis.

Kids got home ok after partying.

 Mom feels good and laughed with friends.

Guess I’ll get off the couch and stretch the tightness from my back.
