“What day it it?” asked Pooh.
“It’s today” squeaked Piglet.
“My Favorite Day!” said Pooh.
And even on a chilly, damp, windy April day – even after being spoiled by so many late March/early April warm Spring days – even after taking things for granted – today is actually the day we get.
So how can we be more like Pooh and declare every day “my favorite day”?
For as life goes on , and we understand more and more -we realize that today really is the day we need to live, to love, to laugh, to thank, to honor, to feel, to accept, to grow.
Today! A day to be grateful for – a day to bring sunshine to another – a day to believe in.
It’s not always easy to think of “today” as your favorite day – when the rest of you might be thinking – “not so much”.
But then – even as I write this – the gray cloudy sky just lightened a bit – and the sun is trying its best to break through – nudging me – to try – and, huh! – you know? – I do feel brighter.
I think sometimes we just have to work a little harder, dig a little deeper, to make each day a more perfect day – a day to be grateful for, and maybe even like Pooh – your favorite day!
Thinking of all of you.
