You think this is just another day in your life.
It’s not just another day.
It’s the one day that is given to you: today.
It’s given to you.
It’s a gift.
It’s the only gift that you have right now.
And the only appropriate response is gratefulness.
If you do nothing else, cultivate that response through the great gift that this unique day is.
If you learn to respond as if it were the first day in your life and the very last day, then you will have spent this day very well…
Let the gratefulness overflow into blessing all around you.
Then it will really be a good day.
~ Brother David Steindl-Rast
This poem came to me at just the right time from the lovely website, First Sip. I share it with you, with gratitude for all the blessings in my life, everything in this photo: my children, my husband, my family, my health, my home.
