A New Day

{Breathe out.}

It’s morning in the country and the sun is just peeping over the horizon. She shines her light on frosty fields that sparkle in delight. The frozen and the quiet and the white begin to change. The sky turns gold, and then blue.
There is promise of warmth and a new day.

And just what will you do with it, this new day, this promise of new beginnings and fresh starts?

Live in every moment…

Make it wonderful.


{And be thankful.}

    Suzanne - I used to adore the
    changing light over
    the rolled hay bales
    near our home in
    Charlottesville, VA.
    Beautiful at sunrise
    as well as sunset : )
    We have a different,
    but still lovely light
    in Minnesota. I love
    the reminder to breathe;
    we need that gentle
    push at this time of
    the year! Thanks for
    sharing another special
    post on Monday Moments!

    xx Suzanne

    I’m adding you to my blogroll so I can stay updated. And just wondering what the kids big gifts for this year are? I still remember the shot of your daughter getting the IPod a few years ago.
