There’s something to be said for starting the day with a song. For me, I listen to the birds in the trees and the busy buzzing bees and I know there is a good world out there. I want to be part of it.
“Look, look, look,” she said, pointing at a pair of fledgling magpies sitting on a log. “That’s you and your sister. When you’re out in nature you have to look around or you’ll miss things.” Those were words of wisdom from my mother. And if I think about it, I also got a creative mind from my mother. And I was given a genius working memory from my genes. And I was given life from my mother. So . . . I am learning to be grateful to my mother. And the funniest thing is, as I’m grateful to her, I am grateful for more of life.
So . . . thank you. And with that thought, I’m going to drink a glass of water.
