As the morning comes, I wake to the light and smile. The sun. It has finally come to warm this cold Minnesota town. It has been a long, unforgiving winter. As I open the window, the birds greet me with their morning song. It is the most beautiful sound and again, I smile. The air is crisp and a faint smell of dew is in the air. God has surely painted a beautiful picture this morning. I enjoy the view, as rabbits run and birds fly. My cup of coffee is a comfort. This is a most wonderful day. Thank you, Lord for giving this day to me.
I went to a party tonight and saw many people with whom I attended high school. It was interesting as I had not spoken with many of them in quite a long time. It really struck me the way people embellish on their lives and make things seem a bit more amazing than they truly are. It makes me take a step back and look at my life as in who I am and how I deal with my situations. I realize that even with all of the issues I have had to deal with: the anger of my ex-husbands, the control that was used on me, and the range of emotions in dealing with alcoholics; my life is beautiful. I have wonderful children, a supportive family, and a strong character that enables me to deal with the situations life throws at me on a daily basis.
I may not have money, I may not have fame, but what I do have is what makes me a loving, caring, strong, happy individual. It is what makes the sun come out every day, even when it is raining. I cherish what I have and I thank God every day.
