April 26 - A New Start

It's Sunday, the end of my week. This morning Ben said, "oh mom, can you believe it's almost Monday again" and I answered, "yes, as sad as it is, it's Monday again". So I've had the day to contemplate this conversation. It is Monday again but does that mean it has to be like last Monday or does it mean this week will be like the last? Tomorrow could be the best day of the week but do we want it to be? Why can't we get excited about Monday's or Tuesday's or Wednesday's, why does it take until Thursday for us to get excited that it's finally the weekend?

Life is what you make of it. Last week was full of opportunities missed, wrong decisions, things we wanted to do but didn't have the time. It was full of illness, scary moments, disappointments and fear of a future unknown.

Tomorrow can be full of hope for a better future. Hope of good choices and opportunites to change the lives for the better of those around us. Tomorrow is a blessing in disguise, it's a bright new day filled with sunshine and family time. So what will tomorrow bring? Life is what I make of it. So I choose to make it better. I will explore something new, I will try to do something to help another, I will smile brighter and I will appreciate my current circumstances. I will give thanks for the life I have been blessed with and try a little bit harder to be thankful that it's Monday. A new start for me and my kids, a new day full of dreams and challenges. All else left behind, a bright future of happier times. A life of family and memories and peaceful feelings that make a new start possible.

Life can begin tomorrow. I can make Monday into a funday, it all starts with me!
