I was getting ready to go to a meeting in my office one beautiful June morning, when this fellow came sauntering through my backyard. The stars were aligned just right and I was able to snap this photo from my open home office window! I used my Kodak Easy Share Z981 camera which has a 26X Optical Zoom to take the amazing shot.
That magical morning reminded me as we go about our daily routine it is easy to get into a grind and forget about the wonderful things that surround us. Don't focus on what you don't have or wish you had. Stop for a moment and look around you, you will see the things that you can be truly thankful for. Whether it is your children, spouse, parents, siblings, friends, a pet, a roof over your head, food to eat, or just the fantastic world of nature that we have been blessed with.
Take time out today to look around you. I'm sure if you think about it, you will find many things to be thankful for. Take a moment to reflect upon those things and you will have centered yourself in a place that is very peaceful. You will then be ready to move on in a positive direction that will benefit you and those around you.
