Yes, I know it's January 3rd already. And I realize that I didn't post any lofty resolutions, or lament goals I failed to reach last year. But I will say this: Today is Monday and I don't know about you, but I love Mondays with a vengeance.

Add to it the fact that this is the first Monday of the new year and can see where this is going, can't you?  I have a brand-new journal waiting to fill. Beside me sits a cup of steaming coffee, thanks to my new stainless steel Delonghi coffeemaker. Life is good, and I've taken a giant leap into the new year with bubbling enthusiasm for what this great Unknown will hold.

I'm enough of a realist to know that there will be struggles, but like a pebble washed ashore, I know that such experiences ultimately polish and refine me. I'm a believer in taking life one day at a time and I'm anticipating each step as someone accepting a rare and precious gift.

I hope your year is also filled with great anticipation and hope.  So tell me, what does this Monday mean to you?

A Time to Reflect

Posted by: bbrunophotography


So I've been crawling out of bed much earlier these days and greeting the day early, right around the time goldfinches and sparrows perch on treetops to warm their feathers.  It's a magical time of day - sacred, even - and I'm growing to love it more each morning.

I sit on my patio surrounded by all the morning sounds: birdsong, gentle breeze, and an occasional car engine responding to a turned key.  I sip my cup of coffee, think about all the ways God has blessed my life, and just breathe in the beauty all around me. Life is sweet, and I feel grateful to have a supportive family, work I love, and friends who understand that us creative types are wired a little differently. Laughing

What's your favorite time of day to just sit and reflect?
