Today I Love The Promise Of A Day
Today I love that I am on Holidays. But I love my job and I love writing these posts. My intention is to keep writing “Today I Love …” while I holiday, but I’ve made provision to republish some of my favorite posts if I cannot access the internet on any particular day. Today is one of those days, but I love that I get to share this post from February 3rd, 2016 with you again. Please, read on …
Today I love this promising day that threatens to be gloomy and wet, that is starting out warm but is guaranteed to turn chilly, that is just another February day, and yet is doing the best that it can. Today is someone’s birthday, and that’s got to make it special. Today is nothing less than the day we were promised yesterday by the sun as it sank in the west. And even though today’s biggest job is to deliver us into the hands of tomorrow, it has a million ways of entertaining us and keeping us busy on the trip there. I love the image in my mind of the world rolling and turning us towards the sun and the sun saying “Peek-a-boo!” as it pops up. And even though sometimes it is hidden by clouds, I love to think that those are the times it is just trying to trick us a little. Silly sun.
Today I love that there are things on my agenda that need to be gotten to today. There are important grown up things like a dentist appointment and a talk with my mechanic about the truck’s need for some maintenance, and there are fun things like a birthday celebration that needs attending. I love that I look forward to everything because much of it is fun, and that which isn’t needs to be done, and when it is I get to dust off my hands and say, “Well, I adulted the hell out of that, didn’t I?” Let’s get started, eh? I love doing things and getting things done.
Today I love that I have every intention of doing some writing today, but if I don’t get the chance, that’s okay, because I already got to write this. I love that my plan is to write everyday and that there are so many days when all I get to write are blog posts or news release edits, but I never get discouraged because I still might get to write tomorrow and because I got to write blog posts and do news release edits. It’s like life is really good, but some days it’s really great.
Today I love coffee, and I’m loving this cup I’m drinking now, even though I only have enough to get me through the morning and if I don’t remember to get some today then tomorrow’s “Today I Love …” might be a bitter old piece of grumbling … ha, no it won’t. I love writing the words “Today I love” too much for that.
