Why is Today Special?

Thoughtful Moments
As each morning comes, it is an opportunity for a new adventure!

I can't tell you how happy I am, in the early morning hours. Everything is fresh and new. Right now, we have lots of snow on the property. The sun has just risen and everything is quiet.

I plan to clean. . .   and sew . . .   and bake brownies. . .  I will listen to the chatter of my three teenagers and talk on the phone with my two adult children. I can't wait to start this very special day.

Why is it special? Only because I decided it will be.

There is too much pain in the world and too many trials. We have good moments and bad ones. Life is like a roller coaster, but the bad always passes away.  This gives us an opportunity for those cherished happy times.

Today will be one of those happy times. And I will make every effort to be cheerful and patient and focused on the family - rather than self.

This afternoon, I will take a long tea break and have a special treat while reading or watching an old program on the television.

May your day be blessed with rainbows and cheer!

Mrs. White

Enjoy your special day!

Today, I'm taking a big leap... I am taking two of my daughters to visit my grandmother. I've only met her once and she's not been a part of our lives at all. She is now in her 80s and God has put it on my heart to reach out and make an effort I go! :)

Have a great day,

Mrs. Sarah Coller

Very true! We make the choice everyday to decide if our day will be special or not. I also love the mornings, when the house is still clean from the night before and my little rascal hasn't gotten into every nook and cranny yet :) Thank you Mrs. White for another inspiring blog post.
