There are mornings when I wake up and within minutes my list of to-do’s starts marching through my mind. Before I am even out of bed my mind goes to work, and the freshness of a new day is forgotten as yesterday moves into today.
In my time with you, when I reflect on all that I want to experience in my life, I see how much I am missing when this happens.
… The sunrise, whether sunny or cloudy, speaks of hope and possibilities.
… The smile on a loved one's face when they greet me conveys affection and belonging.
… The simple pleasure of a warm cup of coffee or tea, offers me a moment to recognize my blessings.
May I embrace the simple moments that make life sweet.
May I seize every opportunity to move into this new day with enthusiasm and full awareness of the gift I have been given.
