Thoughts this morning

It's exhilaratingly cold for a change, cold and bright.  There have been many moments of pure joy this week.  Maybe it's the exercise, not sure, but I'm going to try to stay on the same road.  This morning when I got up for my run there were squirrels everywhere, guess there doing last minute grocery shopping for nuts.  I looked for birds but only saw a few fly over, so today was pretty sparse for birdwatching.  So I just eased into the music of my ipod and got to business at hand and ran.  Funny how we can find joy out of such small things.  The new toothbrush I bought even brought me joy as I brushed my teeth this morning.  Ok, now I'm getting carried away.  But quite honestly the early morning is the time of purest joy, somehow I've forgotten this.  When I lived at the beach I always went to bed by 9, and was up early to enjoy it.  In the move, I've somehow just lost that feeling of the early mornings, maybe because I never go to bed till 11 or after now, and early mornings I mostly feel groggy.  I hit the sack by 10 last night and was up early.  I did enjoy it, how the sun shines as it rises.  So my day was started with a lift.  The river sounded nice. 

There is still an undertow of depression.  As I know Mike has not been so happy lately, not enjoying his job or hours.  It seems harder for him than it does for me us being apart.  For me it just makes me appreciate him more when we are together.  Now it's time for me to wake him to get ready for church, I hope he's as happy as I am this morning and maybe it will rub off on him.  Bless us a lot today!  And bless anyone out there a lot as well.

Hello my friend.  You're not posting as much and I miss seeing your posts.  Maybe it's the time of year that's kind of depressing.  I cannot stand the month of January.  Summer is my absolutely favorite time of year and when it's over it's hard for me.  Sept through Dec. is always busy with school, Halloween, Turkey day and Christmas then New Years.  It's like a let down this month.  Spring is just around the corner, though and those birds will be coming out!  And haven't done any photography lately except for the few new pics on my photo blog, so go take some pics so I can yours!

I hope your day went well. I think right now has been a hard time for all of us. However, I truly feel that 2006 is going to be the year for us that makes a huge impact on our beings. It's going to be a good year and I think it's important for all of us to stay focused on the joy and happiness that there is in this great big old world-it truly is what we make of it. We control our happiness. I love you, big brother. Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!
