Millie stood at the window and stared into the early morning mist. This was her favorite time of the day when the quiet awakening of the world enveloped her like a soft blanket of hope.
She smiled as the sun began its rise over the distant hills. As if from the hand of God, prism like tentacles of light stretched through her window and brushed her cheek.
Renewed in spirit and strength, she ran a hand over her bald head, felt the first hint of new growth, and said a prayer of thanks for another day.
Today, especially this year, with all the turmoil in the world, we should all count the blessings God has given to us and be grateful for the time we have with our family and friends.
From the Cow Pasture, I wish for you a day filled with laughter, love and blessings.
