Monday Mottoes – #160

rosh-hashanah-pomagraniteRosh Hashanah dinner went off without a hitch. Fun, special, new friends visiting. Lots of salads, prayers, and best wishes.

I consider the fact that we are healthy, we have running water, food, a roof over our heads, the future is bright no matter how many small issues may crop up here and there.

Thank you, Lord. That’s more than many in the rest of the world.

We are not refugees fleeing for our lives. There is no civil war here. Food and gas shortages are virtually unknown in our country. We have freedom of religion. Our children have options and can walk on the street without fear.

Is it just me, or does that inspire gratitude in you, as well?heart

Which brings us to today’s motto, written by noted essayist, lecturer and poet, Ralph Waldo Emerson, many of whose observations about life stand at odds with my own, but this one I like:

“Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Why not? Give it that label before you even rise from your bed: the best day in the year!

Make it a great day, everyone.
