We posted a wonderful video clip yesterday – It brings tears to my eyes!
Tears of Joy, Love & Gratitude! I’m posting it again here:
“A Good Day” with Brother David Steindl-Rast, Benedictine Monk
Please take the time to view it…. once, twice….. daily perhaps.
Words I chose to reflect on from the clip: (Mom)
Today is a Gift to me!
I need to be – opening my eyes to see…
- the colors
- the sky
- the weather
- the faces… their stories.
I need to be – Opening my heart and “drink”….
the life-giving water and the gifts around me – civilization gifts!
I need to be – Opening my heart to all these blessings…
and to bring MY Blessings to others…
- My Eyes…..
- My Smile…..
- My Touch…..
- My Presence…..
I need to – let My Gratefulness overflow into Blessings all around me….
You may know or recall – I experienced a near death, “Widow Maker” heart attack April 21, 2008 in the limousine after the funeral mass of my dear mother and friend. It’s approaching 5 years now and each and every day…
I AM…. grateful for my “Gift!” —- Of another day!
Yesterday, discovering that video clip, I decided to explore our property and photograph some proof of the “emerging spring” here in Pennsylvania! I do hope you enjoy them!
|Forsythias starting their regrowth for Spring!|
|Yellow crocuses with Star of Bethlehem plants peeking out!|
|Daffodils start to emerge!|
|Day Lilies breaking free!|
|Hyacinths springing out!|
|Magnolia buds reaching to the Heavens from Nikki’s House!|
Have “A Good Day!” Appreciate and Share Your Blessings… Today!
