'Greet each day
with your eyes open to beauty,
your mind open to change,
and your heart open to love.'
I reckon I've done just that today! Come on and join me......
I was up early and I could see by a glance out of the kitchen window
that it was going to be something special.
So I headed up the hill camera at the ready and Cobba the dog
running up the pathway ahead as usual!
The moon was still in view
and this parrot seemed as though it was flying straight into the sun.
I turned my back to the sun and watched as my long shadow
reached down to the trees across the paddock.
The warm rays of the morning sun turned the dry wintery western hills gold.
Cobba snuck off to seeing what was going on at the neighbour's place.
My eyes were drawn back into the hazy glare of the new day.
And I could hear the buzzing of bees around the old plum tree.
A pee wee sat atop the highest branch and dared the other birds to come near.
Translucent petals shone against the sky.
The bees were in heaven!
And it felt like I nearly was too!
Isn't it great when an ordinary day turns out to be extraordinary? I think, as the opening words say, it can be as simple as being open to the possibility.
Would love to hear what you think makes a day special.
