The Day Begins

I heard the birds sing this morning. I always hear them at around six. They sing in chorus and the song gets louder. Everyday, it feels like they are waking us up and  rejoicing for another day has come.

My heart leaps for joy knowing that I am alive. I try to open my eyes. My mind is a blank slate. It takes a while for me to remember what day it is. It takes some processing to figure out what to do, does my son go to school? Is my husband going to work  or is it a weekend and there is no need to rush? Before I get up:

Dear God, thank you

For the sunrise

For the strength and the health to live another day

For keeping everyone safe through the night

For the restful sleep

For this busy day

For the quiet moments

For the hopes, plans, dreams, and inspiration

For the realizations and all other things in my head

For my family and friends

For myself

Please bless us and keep us all under your loving care

Under Your loving protection

Bless us with a beautiful day

Amen.

Then I rush to the washroom and work in my kitchen. My day begins.

Happy Monday, have a blessed Holy Week, Restful Vacation, Wonderful Week!

A Better Day

Today is exactly a year since I was emotionally liberated. So I lit up a candle in our little altar to give thanks. It was a beginning of a new day, a new hope, a new life, and a time for healing. I know I am almost there. I can feel it in my mind, my heart, and my soul.  Forgiving myself and the person who might have caused me trouble. It is not easy to forget but it is possible to forgive… in time. So never shut the door. Keep believing in the good. You have to help yourself. Train your mind. Pray to God. There is always time for everything. Just hang in there. “Let the storm rage on” (line from the Song, Frozen). Then you will wake up to a better day.
