I'm so grateful to wake gently from a night of dreams full of love and abundance. I'm grateful to feel my heart waking in the sunrise, falling in love with this new day. What a beautiful day to share. Today is Old Settlers and the biggest parade our city has each year. It is a time of people coming together in joy and watching children delight in the activities. Possibilities literally strolling in front of them in so many forms as they explore their interests. Instruments in the band offer different forms of creativity to sing the words of their heart or perhaps the firetruck or horses catch their interest more. It is a time of inspiration, joy and of a community brought together in play. The booths offer the quaint marketplace feel of years and societies past, where people speak to the person that made their goods and share their love of craftsmanship. I'm grateful to be a part of this energy of love. I'm grateful to be a part of this community and this tradition, watching the children's eyes light. I'm grateful to feel my heart waking in this morning light knowing it is safe to rise. It is only a story that it closed and went to sleep. I know because my dreams were full of love, helping children, and abundance in all its forms. Yet as I stretch in the morning light I imagine it as a flower, unfolding its petals in the dewy light. So good morning all you beautiful people. How will you choose to spend your day? How will you view your world today as your own heart blossoms open? What are you grateful for in the sunrise? May your day be blessed with love and abundance. May you see the beauty in the community you live in. Have a beautiful day!
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
