I woke up happy.
Oh, I had to get up in the dark and go to work,
but my soul was happy and grateful.
Happy because I throughly enjoyed my week away from the daily grind,
and grateful to have my inner peace restored.
I came home and fixed my kids dinner, then headed out for a brisk walk.
My iPod was cranking out some good hits.
Then I heard one that got my heart pumping and soul soaring-
“I Will Not Be Broken” by Bonnie Raitt.
The lyrics strengthened my resolve not to let this work chaos
break my spirit. I won’t let them destroy my inner calm.
I won’t let you near it,
I will let my spirit fly…
