There’s something about a new day

What is it about a mornings? They are really quite a gift! In the game of golf, if you have a lousy shot, your friend might say, “Take a Mulligan” which means take another shot, try again…essentially, you get a do-over. In life, each morning is a Mulligan. It’s an opportunity to have a fresh start. When we endure a stressful day or evening and wake up to a new day, there’s something really nice about knowing it’s a fresh start. Imagine how life would be without a new day to experience. What if there were no sleep…no night? Instead of saying, “I’ve had a bad day”, it would be ongoing frustration. Experiencing several hours of sleep gives us an opportunity to reboot, reset, recharge, re-do. We receive a new attitude with a new day, a new outlook, a fresh perspective. I’m so thankful for mornings…the Mulligans of life. Image

Blue skies smiling at me…

Even when the storms of life are all around, I see Hope! I took this picture last week while visiting with a friend who was going through a difficult time. When I saw the beautiful blue peering through the gray, it reminded me of where my Hope comes from. We need to keep looking up and watching for signs of Hope all around us. When the storm clouds surround you, remember that above those clouds there is blue sky and Hope, the storm is only temporarily in view.
