This morning when I woke up I received a gift. It is a gift each morning brings; a blank canvas. In it all I hold the brush. I can determine this morning for hope or fear, for strength or weakness, for victory or defeat. I can set my I mind this morning and give direction to my life no matter what I am feeling. Today I choose life: to enter it with gratitude. Today I choose health: to exercise and eat well. Today I choose love: to touch others with grace.
