It’s a cool day here in Cleveland, Ohio. The sun is shining, the trees are starting to show their vibrant colors, and the birds are singing. I enjoyed all of this in the early morning, before the world woke up!

What a gift – to be able to get before dawn, walk the neighborhood and listen to these morning sounds. There was a light mist over the golf course so that the grass and tree trunks appeared hazy – as if the view was an impressionist painting.

I’m grateful for all that I’ve been granted today. Gratitude – gratefulness, thankfulness, appreciation.
