today-the 18th

this morning
as the smell
and warmth
from my coffee
soothes me
and I slowly awake
and am recharged
for the day
I sit here
in the quietness of our home
as the world wakes up
cars rushing off to work
tractors starting up to
feed our cows
I am reminded that today
is another day
it is a BRAND new day
a day for another chance
it is a present that has not
been opened yet
and we have the option
to make it a good one
we can look at it as a
challenge
as a 2nd chance
a gift to receive and
maybe just maybe
give something back?

I am
excited today
I would like to think of
today as that chance
to be a better wife, mother, granny, daughter, sister, in-law, auntie and friend
may I say encouraging words today
may I be that person
I long to be
may I just be
thankful
---------
blessings to you today,
melody

Good morning, Melody. Thank you for this post. I needed it. I need to get myself and my blogging back in order. It makes me very happy that you have continued posting your gratitudes daily. (Especially since traveling has totally thrown me off the train).
You motivate me to catch up.
