The sun is shining. The birds are chirping. The grass is green. God breathed life into my body. I have full use of my mind and body. I woke up in a bed, in an apartment, with a dog who likes to cuddle. I have clothes on my back, shoes on my feet, a scarf on my head and a song in my heart. My car started. I have a job to go to, a computer to type on, a phone to call and text on. There is a slice of carrot cake in the fridge with my name on it. I will ride on an airplane to the Bay Area and see my best friend in less than two days. Life is good. So rather than look elsewhere for happiness today, I will look within and at what’s directly in front of me. And know that I am blessed. There I go, enjoying the little things.
