Awesome Is

Awesome Is...

Having your very own bedroom

A paid phone bill

Smiling in the face of danger

A surprise from your sweetie

Dangling on the edge, knowing you have a friend to catch you

That first A you ever got in school

That test you didn't fail

No weekend homework

Having a fury little friend for those long lonely nights

Eating ramen when all you can afford is tuna

Over coming the fear that held you back

Taking a summer dip in an ice cold pool

Eating that one over cooked french fry at the bottom of the container

Free tickets to the zoo

Working A/C

Learning a new language

Knowing you are loved and lettings other know you love them

Eating the last dollop of ice cream

Sleeping in a bed

That first gulp of air as you break the surface of water

The gift of waking every morning and knowing you're alive.

Awesome is what you make of life. It can be that moment of absolute enthrallment and it can be that quiet humble moment where just being can take your breath away.
