Because I Can

I howled at the moon last night
not because I was angry or sad
but because I could

I jump in a mud puddle now and then
not because I enjoy getting filthy
but because it takes me back to my youth

I dance in the rain often
not because I want the 'sniffles'
but because my heart tells me to dance

I offered food to a homeless person
not because "Hey look at me!"
but because I had 'extra' to give

I sing each day
not because I have a great voice
but because music makes me happy

I try to smile at every stranger
that meets my eye
because that might be their only smile that day

I try to live my life in this moment
not because I don't care about my past or my future
but because I don't want to miss a thing

I try to count my blessings regularly
not to gloat and feel superior
but so my struggles don't overwhelm me

I try to look for the reasoning
in every event in my life good and bad
 because it helps me to forgive and let go

I try to love with all my heart
for no other reason
but simply because I can

I love it!   I howl at the moon with my dogs. It's quite fun.
