Occasionally I forget how much love and beauty I'm surrounded by in my life. I forget that not everyone is blessed to live by a body of water that shimmers in the sun and constantly varies between numerous shades of blue. I forget that not everyone can go for a walk in the middle of the day under the warmth of the sun, while enjoying the light breeze blowing off the water. I forget that being able to buy coffee and sitting in a bookstore to read for a few hours is a luxury. But today I remembered, and I was able to appreciate how special these gifts are.
So today was a great day. The same kind of day as many other days, but with a totally different perspective. And sometimes, perspective makes all the difference.
What is your idea of a great day? What kind of things did you do with your family growing up that you can still bond over today?
