Today

June 28, 2011

I saw this photo the other day and it just transported me. To Paris.

To a place where there are cafes at every corner.

And beauty everywhere you look.

Amazing architecture, pretty flowers and park benches, bistros, small boutique hotels, French style…

Oh, how I long to go back!

But, for now, my place is here.

Which means, getting breakfast for my three littles, cleaning the dusty house, hanging the laundry out to dry, deciding what to make for dinner. All the stuff that must be done.

The photo inspired me to do a canvas with the words “Today is an Extraordinary Gift“. Because I need to remember that it is.

We aren’t promised tomorrow. We aren’t promised a rosy future where all our desires come true. Sometimes life is hard. And things don’t work out the way we want them to.

But there is beauty in embracing today. Being thankful for what we are given. And making the most of every opportunity we have.

The canvas is available in my Etsy Shop, if you’re interested.

Embrace TODAY!
