You Know When It's a Good Word

When I become sad, complacent, bored,
I look to my One Little Word--

Saw snow, wished for green.
See a little green, wish for leaves.
"Slow down," my mind says.

Remember, we must "savor" this year of 2014.
2013 it was "rock."
2012 was "treasure."
2011 was "ice."

All of these ring of
Strength and

So what's to value now?
No more snow piles.
No more temps in the teens and below.

We're moving up
As "they" say.
Just like life--
Up and then down and
Down and then up.

Savor the minutes,
Savor the days,
Savor the years.

There is no cause
For blandness
And dullness.

Savor the moments.
Life is rich
If you just stop and savor
What is good

Even for just
A moment.


  1. Life is rich, we just have to stop and savor the now. But I have to admit, I do prefer the world when it is green and warm.

  2. It's wonderful advice, Tam. I find it hard to know any other way. I've had a few colleagues in the past who whined a lot, hard to be with them, & often I felt sorry for them, too. Your word is a very good one!

  3. Your post inspired me Tammy! It's spring break and too often I let a few days of blah slip by before I start to relax and "savor", but not today. I loved the lines - There is no cause/ For blandness/ And dullness. "There is no cause" kept popping into my head and because of your words, today was a very rich day!

  4. SAVORing your words today, Tam. Glad you are still clacking words in the post box. :)
