God stopped by

It was the laugh that came out so loud, I covered my mouth and my eyes got big.
It was the curl of my body as I leaned over in delight.
It was when that song came on and my whole being swelled inside.
And when I felt the love slide in after the tension left.
It was how just the very thought of his happiness brought the smile that wouldn't leave.
When the squirrel bent wayyyyy over to drink from the pond and everything stopped
and then he sat right up and looked at me eyeball to eyeball.
It was when you stood close to me in line and I turned to look at your face and got
blindsided by the glory of your youth.
When you leaned back your head and laughed from your gut.
When I pounded the table because my energy couldn't be contained.
When the trees swayed in the wind as I wondered about life.
And the bluebird landed in front of me showing off its colors without even knowing it.
It was in those moments today, and more, that God stopped by.
Just to say hello, and whisper that I am loved.
