Sunday Words - three

“Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.” Gail Devers

The other morning when I woke up I was so excited for the day that I stopped to really appreciate the moment. I was laying in bed under a quilt I made, my head was on pillowcases I found at the thrift store, cool and crisp under my cheek. Next to me sat a pile of books I was anticipating on tackling. The book laying on top had kept me absorbed till all hours of the morning the previous evening as I didn't want to put it down. I looked out the open window and the morning light was hitting the tree and making the green leaves pop against the clear morning. I could hear the birds singing their morning song, chattering to each other as if they also felt the special feeling. The air was cool but smelled so clean and even though it was only May if felt like an early morning before a very warm day. I love that time of morning, when it feels like the world is on the brink of waking up. Life was beautiful and I was ready to jump out and start the day.
