As I sit here on this beautiful Sunday morning looking out the office window, the bees in the trees, the calm, beautiful blue sky, and the fresh air are all inspiring to me. It sprinkled here last night so when I looked out the kitchen window everything was fresh, and wet. I always love the rain because it cleanses the flowers, trees, and the earth. Something that is much needed.
This is a day of rest! A day we can sleep in, read the newspaper, and sip coffee in a relaxed manor, maybe even leave your PJ’s on while enjoying a beautiful start to your day..
Remember to appreciate the things you have in your life. Things like you awakened this morning, or that you were able to get out of bed, and make it into the kitchen for that first cup of coffee, or tea. These are everyday things we do so regularly that they don’t even register as a blessing, but believe me that really are a blessing. All these little things we take for granted, are the things we need to be grateful for.
Resist the urge to focus on the things that didn’t, or aren’t working in your life. You already know what they are, no need to dwell on them. Sometimes when we are emerged in our problems, use don’t even think to refocus on the good, or positive things we have in our lives.
Take this day to rest, and know that while there are many things to get done, this is a time to replenish your spirit, and soul. A time to think about how the following week will be handled by you. Do you take a little extra time to reach out, and contact someone you haven’t talked to in a long while, or do you focus on planning your next day. One day at a time!
Whatever is right for you, is the right thing to do! Just remember that when you work hard, you must take time to replenish your resources.
Thank you for stopping to read Karen’s Stone Soup, have a blessed week. Karen
