A few of my favorite things…

This morning brought a song to my mind – with my own twist.



Raindrops on roses and crocus in springtime
Dew drops on grass blades and colorful sunrise
Daffodils smiling and reaching for sun
These are the things that start spring days of fun

Bright colored pansies and crisp morning breezes
Trees that are budding and my dog when she sneezes
Robins and finches and cardinals that sing
These are a few of my favorite things

Tulips and “Rhodies” and Redbuds and Lilacs
Sweet smells of blossoms and going on long walks
Hearing the music of chimes gently ring
These are a few of my favorite things

When the frost bites
When the wind chills
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so bad!!!
