EACH DAY IS A GIFT!
Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I — not events — have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it
This morning I rose to greet a beautiful summer morning and expressed gratitude for refreshing sleep and the gift of a new day. Each new day is such a blessing for me, especially these lovely days of summer.
I'm thankful that we have enjoyed summer walks, sunshine when it did shine!, beautiful sunsets, gardens full of color and watching swallows and wildlife maximize the summer months.
We have appreciated the freedom of being outdoors and how important it is to get a break from constant television. We have allowed ourselves to slow down, we have given ourselves time to unwind and we have done things we normally might not do.
But after summer break we drift quickly back into what we must do next, what we forgot to do and what we wished we had done. We forget about living in the moment where life bubbles and where life really matters.
In the meantime let's make the most of today and the days that are left in August! The gift of each day is a blessing.
I hope your Thursday is a day in which you can be THANKFUL too.
