Make today a beautiful day

The sun is rising.

  I took this picture when I was at the beach, a beautiful morning sunrise.

I am so blessed, that I had the opportunity to be able to watch this magical site.  It’s a new day.

When you start your day today, be thankful for everything and everyone you have in your life, there are no guarantee’s we have tomorrow.  Say a prayer for those are suffering.  Every morning I start my day with a prayer  for anyone who many be living in the hospital, that their gift of life will come to them today.  This poem was written by Suzy Kassem.

 Each day is born with a sunrise
and ends in a sunset, the same way we
open our eyes to see the light,
and close them to hear the dark.
You have no control over
how your story begins or ends.
But by now, you should know that
all things have an ending.
Every spark returns to darkness.
Every sound returns to silence.
And every flower returns to sleep
with the earth.
The journey of the sun
and moon is predictable.
But yours,
is your ultimate
ART.”
― Suzy Kassem

Today is Saturday, the weekend.  To some people it’s called “finally the weekend is here”, to others it is just another day.  The only thing you have control of, is your approach to the day.

  1. I feel a wave of gratitude spreading in the blogosphere! I’ve seen so many posts today expressing thanks for the little things in life that should be celebrated, as well as the big things! Lovely poem, by the way.
