Simple pleasures

“Mae-ma, we sended you a package. Did you get it yet?”

Happiness is hearing a granddaughter’s voice on the other end of the telephone line.

“Grandma, do you want to hear my piano recital piece?”

Happiness is listening to a performance being given 1,650 miles away.

“I memorized a poem for Poetry Day at my school. Can I say it for you now?”

Happiness is paying attention to Rachel Field’s “The Little Rose Tree” being spoken on the phone.

 I don’t need to win an election or run a race to feel overjoyed.

I need only to answer the phone.
