Glorious Day

Do you ever just have one of those days?

No, I'm not talking about the days that make you want to quit, cry, curse, or eat an entire carton of Ben & Jerry's Chunky Monkey ice cream.

I'm talking about the other kind of day. The day where you think to yourself, "Wow, I just don't think this day could get much better."

Yeah, those. I had one of those today!

When I really think about it, my day was nothing too special. Nothing devastatingly exciting happened to me today. I did not find a $20 bill on the street, or get proposed to on Baylor's campus (ha), or get an 'A' on my Economics test (yeah...that one definitely didn't happen).

I went to class, had a couple of meetings, met with some friends, drank coffee on my porch and journal-ed, laughed with my roommates...nothing too special, right? But, goodness, this day was great.

I was walking on campus on this beautiful, sunny day and the sunlight was shining through the gorgeous trees in the most magnificent way that it literally made me pause for just a moment to take it all in. I swung on my porch swing for the first time in a while and watched the sun drift away.

I breathed deeply today.

I laughed hard.

The little things got to me today in a powerful way.

I hope the little things get to you today, too.
