First Day Musings

We are watching "CBS Sunday Morning", a tradition of more than 20 years for me. I love watching the different stories and learning about people who are truly no more remarkable than me -- except they are on the news!

This morning a feature focused on extraordinary people making a difference in their communities. As I watched, I realized, these folks are no different from you or me. Don't we all want to make a positive change in our world? Our community? Our lives?

Think about it for a minute. So many of us want to contribute to make our world a better place. We do it through One Small Change or charity knitting or encouraging words or simply loving another when they might not be so loveable. Take a look around you. Look at yourself. Aren't you doing something that might seem remarkable?

So, this morning, as I sit here sipping my Raspberry Zinger tea in front of the fire, I am thinking how fortunate I am to be surrounded by so many remarkable people --- people who don't know they are -- and being grateful.

Have I told you how amazing I think you are?
