Morning

Author: D Anthony, D-Rose Impressions, 10/99

* Excerpt from the motivational and inspirational book,
The Nurse in the Delivery Room Slapped Me... Once *



From my unknowing slumber, I awake to find a new day

And for the split second it takes to accumulate my wits

I subconsciously pause to ponder, to reflect

On Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow ... on myself


Shall I focus on ...

The sorrow that found me and ruined my yesterday

Or the fact that I got through it, challenged yet okay


Shall I focus on ...

The aches that more and more often come my way

Or the wisdom of years that grows stronger everyday


Shall I focus on ...

Relationships lost, missed loved ones taken away

Or friends and family here now loving me each day


Shall I focus on ...

The lost manners, the lack of courtesy people display

Or the smiles derived from the Thank You's that I say


Shall I focus on ...

The stress, the difficulties that seem to come my way

Or the amazing power I possess to make an impact today


A second later a familiar realization lights the way

Yesterday is no longer mine to contemplate

And Tomorrow never was

All I really have is Today and Myself

I stretch, smile, and decide to open my eyes

I will not waste another second of this gift ... My New Day


P.S. I hope the calving season is going well for all of you! May God bless your hard-work today and always.
