Sunlight shimmers in the early morning
As a variety of sweet-sounding birds chirped their morning tunes, my husband, our beloved dog, Oscar and I made our way around the local golf course before anyone hit the links. The 6:00 am hour is a fabulous time of welcoming in the day. The newly leafed out trees were all back light by the shimmering sun. I felt as if I was walking in a painting. The colors were illuminated by the rising sun. I could not think of a better way of waking up then strolling over the carpeted greenery with its springy feel as each tree branch seemed to reach out with a “hello”.
There are so many blessings and precious moments for all of us. The important thing though is to be present to capture them. The morning could have played out much different if I was lost in thought. My mind would have been spinning out in either past or future thinking meanwhile missing out on all the richness of the present moment. This day ahead is going to be a good one. I want to leave you with a link for video called, “A good day”, by Brother David Steindl-Rast. If you have a moment, give yourself the gift of watching this.
Enjoy your day!
