Feel the Joy from the small yet big things in life

This morning I watched as the sun was beginning to rise, just before it peaks above the horizon

This morning I watched and felt the anticipation of the sun coming into view.  With the golden light glowing and felt my heart glow and allowed my thoughts to go with my feeling "its going to be a good day".  When I need I will return to this imagine in my mind throughout today.  This moment was only for seven seconds, which is the time a moment usually lasts for and will stay with me for many hours today.  

What is this life if, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare.

No time to stand beneath the boughs

And stare as long as sheep or cows.

No time to see, when woods we pass,

Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.

No time to see, in broad daylight,

Streams full of stars, like skies at night.

No time to turn at Beauty's glance,

And watch her feet, how they can dance.

No time to wait till her mouth can

Enrich that smile her eyes began.

A poor life this if, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare.

"Leisure"  a poem by Welsh poet W. H. Davies,
