We load days and dates with expectation.
When they fail to meet our dreams for them, the pain can be acute.
The challenge is to notice the ever present beauty. To remember that first heat of love, and rekindle it.
To take nothing for granted.
To marvel at the magic of the clouds.
To sink into the embrace of ocean.
To be present to the small touches, the kindness of strangers. The call from a friend.
For some, this is a special day. A birthday. A festival. A time to be with loved ones.
For others, this day is hard.
Like days past and days to come, the day will be what we make it.
No matter the circumstances how we respond is always our choice.
