I'm so grateful this morning to wake inspired. I set my alarm early to get up before sunrise and go out on a photo shoot. I had seen a field of flags as I drove down the highway the other day and was excited to get some inspired pictures of the flags waving in the sunrise. As I got out there and set up I was in awe of the beauty of all those flags flying. I'm so grateful for all the sacrifices those who serve and their families make for our country. While I may not always agree with the fight, I always support the men and women that risk their lives for others. I'm so grateful for all the police, firefighters, paramedics and all those who serve here at home as well. I'm grateful for a beautiful weekend to remember not only all those who gave their lives to service but to all the loved ones we have that have passed on. I'm grateful for the beauty I found out there in the field of flapping flags. While I got few pictures of the brightening sky before the storm clouds rolled in just before sunrise, I'm grateful for the pictures I got. I'm grateful for the darkened sky pictures as well because in that deep grey sky the flags had an even more regal and vibrant appearance. I'm grateful that my memory cards guided me to end my photo shoot so that I made it back to the car with all my equipment just as the rain opened up. Divine intervention at it's finest. I'm so grateful for this inspired and deeply touching morning. And I'm grateful to have still made it back in time to cook breakfast for my loving boyfriend before he had to venture into work. I could not have asked for a more perfect start to this day and I'm grateful to share it with you. What inspires your passion? How can you share your passion with the World? May your day be blessed with the beauty of sunrise, the cleansing of rain, and the fullness of love.
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
