Sunday mornings are always the same with no particular direction in mind, except after yesterday morning's post about Claudia Kronenberg passing away, I walked away from the computer for the day. For those of you with offices in your home, you understand how hard that it is to do sometimes.
I couldn't stop thinking about that video I included with her post and what the old man said at the end. I've watched it twice since then. There's so much we all take for granted. Every day we wake up, start the day, 12-16 hours later finish it and never notice the amazing things that happened along the way.
I remember a wonderful story from Kevin Ames many years ago about his brother getting Cochlear Implants as an adult and being able to hear for the first time. He was startled by the crinkling of an empty potato chip bag and later the sound of running water in the kitchen sink. Most of us don't take the time to even think about the miracle of sight, sound and being able to communicate.
After sharing my thoughts about Claudia, I just wanted to spend the day with Sheila. I took my GH3 and we headed to the Classic Car Show at the Venice Campus of the Friendship Centers and just played. We made it a fun day with no real purpose except to act like Florida tourists.
I really have only one point this morning...and it's from the video...
"...that everyone you will meet this day will be blessed by you. Just by your eyes, by your smile, by your touch, just by your presence. Let the gratefulness overflow into blessing all around you and then it will really be a good day!"
Wishing everybody a wonderful rest of the weekend and a "really good day."
