Remember that when you leave this Earth, you can take with you nothing that you have received, only what you have given, a full heart enriched by honest service, love, sacrifice and courage. -St. Francis of Assisi

A New Day

This morning I realized that I have been waking up earlier than usual, and I went out in the yard to the nice cool, almost fall weather. It feels so much better than the hot, humid, rainy weather we had all summer.

I felt like I could accomplish so much more, getting up early and getting outside in the morning.

While sorting papers today, I found this part of an article that I had cut out of a magazine.

Early in the morning,
it's the start of a new day.
New hopes, new dreams, new ways.
I open up my eyes and I open up my mind and
I wonder how life will surprise me today.


  1. I used to get up and out much earlier than I do now. When I quit smoking 11 years ago, I started staying in bed longer. My husband is a late riser, and I tend to not get up if he doesn't.

    Maybe in camp grounds I'll start taking early walks and greet the mornings.

  2. Glad you are feeling energized with the cooler weather. I feel fall in the air here as well, even though September is usually warm and dry in Rocky Point

  3. Fall is my favorite season and the mornings are beginning to have that fresh crispness that I love so well.

    Great quote.

  4. Nice piece and nice to have you back. Hope your little trip went well.

  5. love the peace and quiet in the morning before anyone else is up!!

  6. I am a cool morning person as well and just love the magical Autumn days.
