the best things in life are free.

The best things in life are free. You own them already, but you don’t know that they’re the best things in your life…yet.

Yesterday, in a dream, I rode a yellow bike down a straight lane to a place I didn’t plan to go. It was lovely, the thought of that was lovely.

The best things in life are living, breathing. They can be touched and held and can touch you back.

Today, I kissed my children and my toddler said “I love you.” It was lovely, the feeling of that, hearing that was lovely.

The best things in life are humble. They stick around when you love them and when you think you don’t.

My best friend calls me even when I forget to call her. She asks “How are you?” That she cares is lovely.

The best things in life are free. They don’t cost you anything. They want nothing from you but give you everything in return.

My toe nails are painted pink. Hot pink. And every time I look at them I smile. They’re lovely.

The best things in life can’t be bought. They don’t accept credit cards or dollars or tokens of wealth.

The best life is lovely, just lovely.
