Gratitude is the music of the heart, when its chords are swept by the breeze of kindness.

21st - I am thankful for the song the birds sing each morning

Some days there won't be a song in your heart.  Sing anyway. 

Emory Austin

We can learn a lot from the birds about living in the present moment.   Every day is a new day to them. Every day comes with a sense of joy. Their songs are loud, they come with a tune.  The birds sing and greet each other with cheer. They flock together to connect and get ready for the day ahead.  Their existence is simple, it’s virtually a way of living in the now. The simple existence of being alive, of being able to wake up in the morning and treat each day as new.

¸¸.•*¨*•Let’s all sing like the birdies sing. Tweet, tweet tweet, tweet tweet  
 Let's all sing like the birdies sing,¸¸.•*¨*•Sweet, sweet sweet, sweet sweet. 

It never ceases to amaze me as to how such a small being can produce such melodious sounds. You only get one shot at life, and you don’t have a whole lot of control over what happens to you in it. Take advantage of the choices that you do have.

I choose to be amazed!

Life is a song.  Love is the music.

It is always pleasant to hear the birds singing indeed. I like your thought to live life amazed. It is a good way to do so, to see and experience all the amazing things out there.

YOur top line, 'Thankful for the song the Birds sing'. Struck a cord. I am hearing thigs I haven't heard in years. I am hearing birds singing. Just after my implants Sherry and I were out in our 'swing', and I heard something new and asked, 'what am I hearing?' She laughed and told me I was hearing the birds. I had forgotten!
