The Story:  Imagine a warm day in summer; you’ve done your chores and the house is clean and tidy. You decided to go out and do some shopping and see some friends for a coffee and chat.  You’ve rushed around and had a fabulous time. You’re back at home and are having a quiet 5 minutes.  You’re thinking about the things that happened and the laughs you’ve had; the sun is shining in through the window and you feel warm and contented.  Your eyes begin to droop and you smile gently.

The Orange by Wendy Cope
At lunchtime I bought a huge orange –
The Size of it made us all laugh.
I peeled and shared it with Robert and Dave-
They got quarters and I had a half.
And that orange, it made me so happy,
As ordinary things often do
Just lately. The shopping. A walk in the park.
This is peace and contentment. It’s new.
The rest of the day was quite easy.
I did all the jobs on my list
And enjoyed them and had some time over.
I love you. I’m glad I exist.
