Today was a perfect day. Perfectly ordinary and yet it didn’t feel ordinary to me. I woke up looking forward to seeing two of my dearest friends. We took a walk in a beautiful park nearby. Walking in this crisp autumn day was just what we all needed. We talked, we walked and we laughed. We came upon these amazing Dahlias, such a beautiful sight to see.
Dahlias bloom from mid summer until frost. We were ecstatic to see the gorgeous colors of the flowers and just the beauty of life. In a couple of weeks these beauties will die and the ground will be covered with frost. For right now, we enjoyed them and admired them. Seeing them and being with friends that allow me to be myself made me giddy! You see I’m on the path of enjoying my life, moment by moment, day by day. Sometimes I get off the path, I mean really lose my way. Somehow I keep getting back on track.
Later in the afternoon I got to pick up my beautiful little girl from school, hug her and take in just how lucky I am to have her. I wrapped up my evening having dinner with a family member I hadn’t seen for a long time. We discussed our lives and all the ups and downs that we have gone through. I left dinner feeling blessed. Thankful for all the wonderful people in my life. Thankful for this perfect day.
Tomorrow will be another perfect day, at least that’s what I’m aiming for.
I hope you wake up to your perfect day.
