Is there anything sweeter than the morning rain, and the sweet drops that linger on the petals of the spring blooms? This morning, as I watched the rain gently fall and give my flowers the water they craved, I knew that life is good. I want for nothing. Today has been one of those melancholy days. Just a little bitter sweet. I know that all I have is all I need. We really do run ourselves to the ground and for what? With all the money, we can't buy the simple pleasures in life. We miss out on the smell of the rain, the sound of the rain, and really searching the sky for that rainbow when the sun peaks out after the spring shower. Slow down. Take a deep breath, and really stop and count your blessings. Is it really worth worrying about? Is it really worth arguing about? We don't know what tomorrow will bring. We don't know what the next hour, minute or second will bring. We can only cherish this moment, right here right now. Don't waste it, don't let it pass you by. Live. Tell someone you love them. Smile. Laugh. Enjoy. Cherish. Feel the life that is inside you and remember that each day, each moment and each breath is simply, a gift from God. What we choose to do with it, is our gift back to him.
