Contented

CONTENTED

Janie and I rode in her red convertible down the winding road to Maple Lake to watch the canoes race as they hurriedly rowed down the meandering stream.

"They're rowing hard in their canoes," I said upon arriving there.

Sitting on the dock as one of the canoes was being towed out of the race, we dipped our pink toed feet into the cool water, when suddenly a fat toad hopped into the lake splashing us.

As four rowers passed by in a canoe, one yelled, "Fore," as the toad hit the water, and we all laughed for joy.

Reaching into the basket I brought along I said, "I'm going to pare this pear that I brought for the pair of us."

Enjoying the lilac scent wafting on the air, I waved bye as Janie sent me to the snack bar by the fence to buy us each a 2-cent lollipop.

"Where are you going?" Janie yelled as I walked to the car to get my new ball cap to wear, recently purchased at the hardware store.

Due to the hot sun and wanting to do a kind gesture for my friend, I bought her an ice cold Mountain Dew.

Walking back to the dock, I saw two children drinking from the fountain, quenching their thirst too.

Contentment preys upon our minds as the day winds down; so, we lift up praise to our wonderful Lord as each prays and thanks Him for
His blessings.
