For so many of us, Monday seems filled with too much to do, too many things to worry about and the beginning of a long week ahead. Here’s another perspective to consider:
The Blessing of Your Life
The blessing we are given, begin with each new day
wondrous things can happen brightening the way.
The laughter of our children, the greeting of old friends,
this day is ours for molding, from beginnings to the ends.
With the start of each week, a gift has been received,
labor hard, laugh and love but mostly be well pleased.
“Life is a joy, your choice to make the best of each day you are given –
which is a blessing, in and of itself, to be cherished.”
Penny L Howe, 2014
My wish is for you to have a wonderful week ahead. Take time to be grateful for that which you do have.

I am grateful for each day given me. Have a fabulous week Penny! 🙂
Thank you LuAnn, and you as well. Might we be viewing some creative prose soon, dearest friend and extra sister too? 🙂
That’s awesome Penny 🙂 Thank you. Have a great week my friend
And you also Alastair, dear friend of mine! 🙂
… I am grateful for the day, Penny. And glad to have found you again! It’s been a while!
I’m glad I’ve been found again also and so pleased you’re grateful for the day. Have you been taking care of yourself?
Oh, yes. I am doing my very best. Trying to keep stress-free and healthy.
Fantastic! Good to hear this and you are happy too?
Wow – good question. I think I would be happier if I were able to “accomplish” things. I need to re-think my accomplishments these days…
It can be tough. I knew this one lady (I envied her actually) she raised a bunch of children on her own, worked her way through college, became a professional psychologist and told me when she was at a loss of what to do, she’d clean! Anything and everything. Cleaning was her way to balance herself with her emotions. I never forgot her but I realized (I am so not a clean freak) that each of us has “something” action oriented that we can do to help balance ourselves. You might look to see what your balancing method might be! Just a thought, albeit a long one, LOL!
Wishing you a wonderful week. We saw a super rainbow today in the sky…. I quite like Mondays, they are better than Fridays for me…. 🙂
Thank you my dear friend. Wishing the same for you, Ute. Oh cool, I love rainbows so much! I am glad you enjoy your Mondays, start’s the week off so very well! 🙂
In fact, I love weekdays because I some time to do my work. On weekend, I can’t concentrate and do my work. Or else, my husband will complain.
Well, alright then. Happy Monday to you Yoshiko! 🙂
Happy Monday to you too, Penny, do you like Monday?
I love Monday, the beginning of a whole new week where wonderful things might just happen, Yoshiko.
I see. Seems that you and I have the same preference.
