Day 326

"This is the day the LORD has made;We will rejoice and be glad in it." Psalm 118:24

How many of us actually rejoice that we are alive? The majority of the time, we simply get up, go to work, get home, go to bed, and do it over and over. We need to be thankful that we are still alive. Thankful that we can see the sun rise and set, thankful we can feel the sun on our faces, thankful we have rain keeping our earth alive, thankful that we have friends and family... We are so rich in so many ways. I think it is time to rejoice in each day.

Off to walk three dogs today, two tomorrow, Costco today, we are getting our new washer today...

I think we have too much. Instead of seeing what we have - we see what we want. We overlook the everyday gifts - people in our lives and our blessings.

Reminds me of a Neil Gaiman quote!

"Mostly we're too busy living to stop and notice we're alive." - Neil Gaiman

I think people forget too easily that there's life beyond just surviving. Noticing the little miracles makes things so much more rewarding!
