Today Is The Day

It’s the middle of the week AND and it’s a birthday – two reasons to see something wonderful in today.  Oh don’t misunderstand – I still want my power back, it is still relentlessly in the triple digits and I know if I stay outside for too long,  I may melt a few more inches (would that those inches were around my waist).  But I am here with my delicious daughter-in-law, drinking coffee and grateful that I slept for longer than three hours.  And I’m beginning to feel it again…

Perhaps sassy shorts…it’s not been the greatest of weeks so far.  Nonetheless, here are some things you may want to consider doing on your day off today…or, any day..

Find something to marvel at – anything…

Go on a date that leaves you exhilarated..

Take a nap


Decide you’re going to wake up happy (you can do that you know)

Hug someone with all you’ve got – and if you grunt ’cause you’re hugging so hard, that’s even better..

(I concede these guys don’t look like they’re hugging really hard, but I loved the picture)


Remember that joyful abandon is not solely the bastion of children – find the beat and lose yourself..

I hope you hear some great music today – and everyday
