I went for a early morning walk this morning and just got back. It was dark, cold and very quiet. When I looked up at the streetlights, I could see it was snowing. Not much, just little flakes. The perfect time to be by myself.
I take with me my cell phone, house key and pepper spray. This morning I poured a cup of hot coffee and sipped on it.
My walks take about an hour and I usually walk about 4 miles, but today (with coffee in hand) I went at a slower pace. I have a regular route that I walk. When I walk this early in the morning, I walk right down the middle of the road. I like to check on all the houses that I see regularly. I see who's up making breakfast, see if a house is still for sale, which house decorates for special occasions. One of my favorite things to do, is to think how I would fix up a certain house or change or add something. And I never miss walking by my favorite homes.
Today I did something I haven't done in a long time. I started out backwards and ended up the way I usually start. I saw things quiet differently.
So with that said, I want to leave you with this quote that I read last night.
"We were discussing the philosophy of 'Live each day as though it were your last'. "Well," said the sweet old lady of the group,"that's a fine saying, but for 20 years I've been using a philosophy that's a little different. It's this: Treat all the people you see each day as though it were their last day on earth.
Have a great Sunday!
