The sun will rise.
The daily questions of course!
The love of my husband, my sons, my mother and sisters and really a lot of other people.
The possibility to be joyous and to enjoy, The possibility to discern.
The love of God.
The continuing and everlasting love from my husband.
My first reaction to this is that “we can count on nothing,” but then I read Barb’s post and a couple of other and realized it’s not all about me (duh). Of course, the Earth will spin, the tides roll in and so forth.
If I wake up, and I am grateful for every breath I take, I can count on my husband, my dog, food to eat, friends, my cozy home, and so much else. I am so thankful for all of it.
Every day, something good will happen at exactly the right time. Sometimes it will surprise me (today it was a delightful message on LinkedIn from an old colleague just as I was feeling a wave of sadness). Sometimes I won’t see it until after it happens (yesterday it was an inspiration to repurpose old crafting materials that were headed for the trash). And sometimes, I will have to make something good happen (show up, listen well, help out).
I hope I can count on another day on this great earth! I can count on the love of my husband and animals. I also count on myself to be grateful for all that I have…for this day, food and water – the birds singing, and the beautiful sun shining on the trees.
The sun rising & setting. ❤️
The sun will rise, even if I can’t see it behind cloud cover.
The Earth will spin on its axis and the force of gravity will keep me on the ground.
The moon will exert its gravitational force on this planet and the tides will rise and fall.
That’s three good things and everything else is a bonus that I can’t really count on so I need to appreciate all of it in the moments that I have.
Presuming I’m alive and breathing, I
can count on the the earth spinning
around the sun. I’m not sure if it’s just
my pessimism, but I don’t really count
on anything for sure. Once I’m up, I rely
on my senses to alert me to the new day
and I can start to appreciate all that is
around me. As I sit here on the patio, with
my cup of strong coffee, with the cool
grey of the morning, with my cats roaming
around, listening to the owls, woodpeckers,
and morning doves, seeing the plants that
are in bloom and the ones that have already
bloomed., feeling lucky that I get this one
more day. Nothing is guaranteed and I
try not to take anything for granted. I’m
grateful for this time that I have to ponder
My kettle will boil, coffee will happen and the peace of the morning will shine through
Honestly, I do my best not to count on anything but be grateful for everything and a we all know, that is not always easy but seems essential to keeping an open mind and heart. I wish to always remain willing to learn, to focus more on how than why and to respond instead of react in all situations.
Well said, Carol, and a good reminder. Thank you.
Carol, as usual, we are in sync. 🙏
The sun sets and rises.
I can count on becoming anew.
