Every Day is a Gift

Photo by EarthlyCharms.com



EVERY day is TRULY a gift. Life gets so busy we all forget to stop and smell the sunshine. Sometimes we're forced to slow down due to health reasons, tragedies, unexpected events, etc. Sometimes hours, days, weeks, go so fast it's hard to fit in the simple pleasures in life. Hard, but note, NOT impossible. 

Take this time, this minute, to count your blessings, give a hug, help a person out in need, or simply just listen to the stillness and blessing of life.

May you ALL have a BEAUTIFUL day!

Taking a breather from life and all the stress is such a good reminder. Thanks Mart.

Great message. I think especially this time of year, we need to think about what life is about. Sometimes we get so caught up in the journey to be a writer, and all the work to be seen and heard online, to do all the right things that will help us reach our goals, we forget WHY we have these goals in the first place.

I sure appreciate you, Martha! Thank you for all you do, and for helping us remember what's important! :)
