You may see a pile of brown bananas. I see ingredients for banana bread.
You may see overgrown hair on my child’s head. I see potential for gelled sculptures.
You may see heaps of laundry that need folding. I see colorful clothes that helped us work hard and play hard.
You may see toothpaste globs on our bathroom sink. I see pretty, white teeth smiling at me.
You may see sand in my car. I remember that fantastic beach trip last month.
You may see blankets strewn on our sofas. I see cuddles in front of movies.
You may see dog hair on my wood floors. I see lots of dog-loving going on.
You may see fingerprints on my refrigerator. I see self-sufficient kids making their own snacks.
You may see bins overflowing in my attic. I see Christmas lights, Halloween costumes, Easter baskets, and camping supplies.
You may see muddy soccer cleats. I see a game well played.
You may hear a garbage disposal full of popcorn kernels. I hear the leftover fun from movie night.
You may look at me and see chaos. I look at myself and see a full life.
You may see a glass half empty. I see a glass half full…and make mine a beer, please.
