Make it a Great Day!

Thanking God for the gift of this new day.  Thinking of His love for us and His wisdom in making Sunday a day of rest.  I’m not sure Sunday is always restful for moms~getting everyone ready for Mass, cooking meals and clearing dishes doesn’t exactly sound restful.  However, there is something wonderful about the “in-between” time when it is good to read a book, call a friend, go for a walk and not worry about the Monday-Saturday chores.

Today, I am reminded by Thomas Merton to live in the present moment:

“You do not need to know precisely what is happening, or exactly where it is all going. What you need is to recognize the possibilities and challenges offered by the present moment, and to embrace them with courage, faith and hope.” ― Thomas Merton  

Sunday, in particular, is a fabulous day to let go of knowing “where it is all going.”  I look forward to today and what it will bring.  I am going to try to recognize the possibilities and to look at each challenge moment by moment.  Today is a day to embrace.  Embrace the day.  Embrace the challenges.  Embrace Each Other.

Make it a great day, Everyone!
