Appreciating The Good Things

So it is not often that you get such a beautiful sunrise, truly this is one of the most amazing sunrises I have seen in a long time(minus the telephone poles).That is city life for you!. I don't know why but for some reason this one spoke to me. Now I know you are probably thinking "it spoke to me" really come on !!! but for some reason it did. The weird thing is it only lasted for a few brief moments then it was gone. I am so glad I grabbed my camera and captured it, it was a great way to start my day. It's these kind of things that make me so appreciative , to be alive and healthy and to be so fortunate. Just thought I would share this beautiful sunrise, sometimes it's moments like these that put things in perspective.

We go about our daily lives and often we never take the time to truly enjoy life.We get so consumed with our jobs, kids, responsibilities that we kind of miss out on these amazing gifts.
So next time you see an amazing sunrise or sunset really take a minute to enjoy it and savor the moment. I often think about people who never really "take time to smell the roses" it's really kind of makes me feel sad for them. People are going through life and missing out on so many amazing things!!! Hope you have a great rest of the week.

"Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you may look back and
realize they were the big things."
