When God Shopped Online

Mi, do you think God shops online? I don’t know, but let’s imagine that he does. ♥ God was in his heaven and all was right with the world. Or so he thought and decided to take a nap.

Happiness Is a Mini Break

I was tired of my to-do list It was so very long I yearned to take time off And listen to that song I looked for ways to relax And hit upon a plan I ditched the list and spent Time with my little man No need to go out To have a happy time We could watch movies Enjoying words and mime Home sweet home is heaven My feet comfortably up Before I counted to seven Here’s...
