Begin each new day with a sincere sense of gratitude. Become PRESENT and TRULY grateful for those small things in life that may have just passed you by. It tends to a profound, rich, personal JOY that supersedes and transcends happiness that is singularly based upon happenings. Today, as many others, I look out of my window, and I see the beautiful, blooming flowers that God & the Universe have given to me each season. I look forward to the future that each new bud foretells. I think about what it means for some of them to have both fragrance and beauty while others’ are simply quiet and regal. They are all around me…They make me smile and truly lift me up! I understand and appreciate that I was specially chosen to receive this gift…that it was tailor-made just for me and that there are others’ who may not have received it. For this little blessing I am DEEPLY grateful and joyous!
