Focus on Gratitude

by Kim

"Do not take anything for granted - not one smile or one person or one rainbow or
one breath, or one night in your cozy bed." - Terri Guillemets

Not for friends who are willing to meet you at the sunrise at o'dark thirty since the time change because they know you've had a bad week.

Or for your coffee date after the sunrise with those same friends at your "spot" and playing with your shots in instagram.

Not for the belly laughs that are medicine for your soul.

And especially not this . . .  or for getting to personally express my gratitude, for the impromptu hug or that it landed in the parking lot where you were having that coffee date.

No, do not take for granted that the day can lead you by the hand if you let it.

Or for good timing, or shrimpers and their fresh catch.

Or for the pelicans that do a fly by...super close!

"At the end of the day, let there be no excuses, no explanations, no regrets."
- Steve Maraboli

Have a fabulous day!  - Kim
