Each Day Is A Gift
By Jacqueline Coote
Each day the sun comes up we say to ourselves “Here’s another day. Now what do I have to do today?” We get out of our beds, put the coffee up to brew, perhaps turn on the computer to see what is going on in the world before we do anything else. We prepare and layout the clothes we are going to wear, maybe make a list or two of things that have to be done, then we head out the door.
As we head out that door, we don’t know what the day has in store for us. Hopefully all will go your way. You might meet someone you haven’t seen in a while. Chit chat for a few moments, then be on your way, You might also come across someone who has had a bad day and takes it out on you, thus tossing your plans for an enjoyable day or evening out the window.
Some of us might take the time during the day to call a family member or perhaps a friend or two. We take it for granted the time we have on this earth and don’t fully appreciate what we have.
Each day is precious. Whether it is rainy, sunny, snow is falling or there is a hurricane in the process. Each day that we can say, “What do I have to do today?” is a blessing and not to be cast aside lightly. We should be thankful for whatever we have and not dwell on the things we don’t. There is nothing on this earth that is more important as your well-being and the love of family and friends.
Soon the holidays will be here. What better way is there to show the love and thankfulness of having a family and friends. Gathering around a decorative table with food prepared from the heart of our dear ones. A moment to talk about the our past, present and future.
As a free nation, we should be thankful for our freedom to worship as we please, to support the political party of our choice, to honor our flag and all it stands for.
So as we start each day, and as you first open your eyes in the morning, say to yourself how lucky you are to have what you have, then say to yourself, “What do I have to do today?”
Enjoy my friends, another day that is always a gift. Whatever you do… make the most of whatever comes your way!
