It started out as a brisk,clear, beautiful day. The cool of the morning was the best reminder of the next season that was ahead. My husband remarked, that he thinks it is the most perfect day we have had all summer.
The fresh watermelon at breakfast tasted sweeter than ever.
Early in the afternoon, I saw on the computer that there was an earthquake in Colorado and informed my husband, since we have family in that state. We were investigating the facts about that one, never thinking that we would be the next ones to experience our own earthquake.
And, experience it we did(fortunately on a mild level).
Certainly does give one an unsettled feeling to feel the earth moving under one's feet. It took me a while to process it all, as I'm sure it did for everyone who experienced it.
...by the evening, the little ones, oblivious to the day's events, were relishing their play time in the neighboring lawns. As I watched them, so carefreely running and playing, I was reminded of the innocence of youth. They aren't troubled by the day's happenings, and neither do I want to be.
I read a quote recently that I found to be profound. "See each morning a world made anew, as if it were the morning of the very first day;...treasure and use it, as if it were the final hour of the very last day." ~Fay Hartzell Arnold
Great advice for me as I face another new day today. Hope it is a good one for you!
