Each morning when I go to pick Kempton up out of his crib it’s the same. He giggles and smiles and then reaches up to me and we start the day. This morning he was extra smiley and it made me think. He wakes up each morning so thankful for life. He doesn’t worry about anything, or dread anything. He is simply excited for a brand new day.
A brand new day. That is what God gives us every morning. A chance to shine His light. A chance to make someone smile. A chance to just breathe it all in and say thank you. So often I wake up on monday morning with an unrealistic to do list and I find myself frustrated and annoyed when the day doesn’t go as I’ve planned. I know I just need to give it to Him, because honestly the day was never mine to begin with. Each and every day is a day that the Lord has made and it is only because of His love and mercy that we are given life at all.
So I’m challenging myself to makeover my Mondays. To see it all differently. See it as His day not mine. To put a smile on someone else’s face. To bless someone. To send a cheerful text to a friend. When I look at Kempton’s joy for life I am reminded of how precious each day is and how there is no room to waste even one day on bitterness or self pitty. Every day is a day that is borrowed so live it to the fullest! I am vowing to start the week with a positive attitude and make Mondays the best day of the week!
