I was in the Trolly Bus today on my way to the city and was once again in one of my many trances. This one I had my Rasta colours headphones on, music turn up and lost in my own little world.
I was looking around and began to pay attention to what I was actually seeing.
I felt joy in sisters teasing the hell out a each other, sadness for an old blind man singing for money and a whole bunch of emotions for a mom with three small children she was tending.
I left that bus giving thanks for my health, strength and sight. I blessed God for my mom who took care of me when I was a wee girl and prayed God would watch over that mother on the bus.
I also missed my sisters to bits… All and all I just took a minute to appreciate my life.
