Oh ,What an Opportunity

I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve
the world;or just enjoy the world.
This makes it hard to plan the day.


Ways you can improve the world...
spread hope, spread love,
give of yourself.
Give long hugs.
Wave to someone even if you don't know them.
Hold the door open.
Call that friend even though it's " not your turn."
Listen to the birds,
Do they worry?
Doesn't God care for them?
Are you not more important?
There will always be trouble if we look for it.
We see whatever we want to see.
Open my eyes to what's right here.
This day ; all sparkling new and glistening.

I wanted to share this photo of my youngest, having a picnic in
"the sunny spot"
I recall this day as clear as a bell,( I just can't believe it's been five years!)
it was one of those days like so often over the years, that my
children taught me more than I could ever try  to learn elsewhere.
Children know how to "seize the day."
