Celebrate Each Day

The most visible joy can only reveal itself to us when
we've transformed it, within.
Rainer Maria Rilke

Sometimes I feel that time just pass by in a glimpse. That's why it helps to pause for a while and embrace the moment. Enjoying some peace and quiet helps me think of my life. A time like this makes me realize how lucky and blessed I am.

Allow me to celebrate this day and be thankful for what I have. When I think about it, there are so many things that I should be grateful for...

  • my cotton pajamas
  • soft pillows
  • a warm embrace from my husband and son
