A Poem to Share - I LOVE this!!!!!

My good friend WendySis Bartlett sent this to me.  I think it may be THE most perfect little poem ever for helping me put things in perspective, and help me realize a lot of things I see as problematic are really fairly easily solved.

I had not see this poem before, and never heard of Kaylin Haught, who seems to be an elusive soul as far as Google is concerned.  Anyone know anything about Kaylin Haught??

God Says Yes To Me

by
Kaylin Haught

I asked God if it was okay to be melodramatic
and she said yes
I asked her if it was okay to be short
and she said it sure is
I asked her if I could wear nail polish
or not wear nail polish
and she said honey
she calls me that sometimes
she said you can do just exactly
what you want to
Thanks God I said
And is it even okay if I don't paragraph
my letters
Sweetcakes God said
who knows where she picked that up
what I'm telling you is
Yes Yes Yes

That really is beautiful, Kaye, but I wouldn't expect WendySis to send anything but the best.
