Having a Ball

Balls of Thanks

As I look over my week
And pondered for a moment
I may just choose to shriek
To all my heart's content


Another day in court made me feel so weak
I had some  van troubles
Like the breaks making squeaks
Plus my tires were so bald, unsafe, and antique

But regardless of all
There are things that went well
I am thankful for volleyball
My daughter played well

I am thankful for basketball
It's my son's sport this fall
Plus he didn't run away
So he's good overall

I am thankful for Paul
He's here, the long haul
Through my cancer years, depression
Teens' troubles, and all

I am sure there are more
I should be thankful for
Some things may be small
I just cannot recall

I can say, it's a good week
Hey, I did not freak
And compared to some weeks I cried
This week I laughed, and I smiled.

Daughter at play, puts a smile on my face
For when she is here, I know she is safe


What are you thankful for?

Nice job! I'm a horrible poet.
Glad your kids are doing well. Crappy car? Yeah, I hear you. Got two of them. Turn the radio up. That's my solution to most car problems.

I spent 45.6 seconds trying to come up with a comment that rhymed, but came up blank. I'm liking your Suessesque ttot this week! Not liking the car troubles. Been there. It isn't a fun place to be.
I'm glad to hear things are going well with the teens!

I'd be thankful if I could just write a poem at all.
Well done.

Thanks Suzy Mae. I've taken care if major troubles and repairs needed. I can drive safe too with newly installed winter tires.

What a great TTOT verse! It sounds like you had some things that went well. It is good that you can know that you will not be driving on bald tires too.

The winter-non bald tires are noisier but safer.


I would love to read your comments.
