Life is Sweet

The friends we pass along the way

remind us that we're A-okay...

And even when we wander through

those paths removed from others' view,

we find that peace is all around,

and there is goodness to be found.

We pluck from life the things that feed

our hungry spirits. Every need

is ours to seek and satisfy,

with help, of course, from friends on high.

The rich, ripe fruit makes living sweet

and gives our souls enough to eat.

Such fruit, once shared, is always sweet.

We're a few weeks away until blueberry picking time and yours looks wonderful and put me in the mood for some now! Loved the poem!

What a beautiful poem.
The blueberry picking photo's are great and bring back memories of when I used to take my children. It is hard work, however, worth it!

Picking fruit is good for the work ethic, good for the stomach, good for the soul. I love it (and have had my over abundance of it with the kids here lately as well! :) ) Beautiful pictures, words and music!

Have I ever told you that my favorite posts of yours are ones with your grandchildren in it! Love seeing those 3 little cuties.

Caroline of Salsa Pie said...

Amen, Sue.

I loved "We pluck from life the things that feed our hungry spirits. Every need
is ours to seek and satisfy,
with help, of course, from friends on high."

Beautiful. :)
