Mornings ~

In a world where you can be anything, be kind...

There is something to be said about being an early riser 
and catching a glimpse of the first rays of sunlight. It's calm, 
it's peaceful, and nothing nor no one to interrupt my thoughts. 

As the new week begins, we are once again given the 
opportunity to correct last week's mistakes.  For those who did 
not make any, kudos to you.  For me life is always a learning path,
 and always a chance to make things better.  At least to give it a try.

My friend Anna in California is missing her Taino so very much.
Her Taino was with her longer than many, and I know she aches.

  Unfortunately, there is not much anyone can do to take away 
her pain, other than to bring her Taino back.  I feel her pain when we
 talk and my heart breaks, for I know what she is going through.

For many of us today is just another day.  For others
 it is a struggle that seems never ending.  It's not always easy. 
What else can we do?  When we face our darkest moments that
 is when we need to focus even more on all the goodness 
surrounding us and all we should be grateful for. 

 This is easier said than done.  When I was facing these intense
 moments of grief, nothing anyone said to me made it better.  
NOTHING.  It took time to ease that agonizing grief.  
It still comes back, but now it is more bearable.

As the new week begins, let's try to be a little kinder to 
each other for we do not know what that other person is 
going through.  Remember, sometimes the brightest
 of smiles hides the most agonizing pain.

A cold start of the week.  At least it will get warmer
 for us, for many the cold will linger for quite some
 more time.  Good morning all, happy Monday, 

The things you take for granted someone else is praying for.
Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about...
