Today, set aside all of the things that demand attention and live. Just for a moment, walk in the snow and the sun and the soft babbling of the ducks on the pond and just be here.

Smile like a crazy woman at the wonder of it all and smile some more because I'm smiling, really smiling and it's been too long.

Forget about the housekeeping that is never done enough anyway and the work that will be there later. Stand in the cathedral of water and snow and leaves and listen for the whisper that says grace is here, always here, even when we miss it.

Today there is sun, and no promise that it will be here forever. The last leaves will fall. Harsher snows will come. The skies will get dark. But today there is the sun and the snow and maybe that is enough.
