You know, we can ask for it-
and beg and plead,
happiness wants to play
tag, and sometimes,
“you’re about to be ‘it,‘”
(and you don’t
even know it,)
until your eating your
granola snack behind
your favorite tree
on a wicked hot
slurping up your
favorite, grape drink,
only to get startled a little bit
when happiness sneaks up,
tosses out a
💦 water balloon 🎈and says,
“bet you can’t catch me!”
and before you know it,
‘you’re it,’ 🏃

Yes, how sometimes it is like a game, and we don’t even realize we’ve been playing it, until we find the delight. Thank you, David
