I was on a break from drum lessons, going to physical therapy for an over-used elbow – today I can practice for two hours, pain-free,

I was missing some long time friends who had chosen a different path – now I have reconciled these differences,

I was working up to a 3 mile walk – now I working up to a 5 mile run,

I was letting the grey skies and rainy days color my mood – today my life is filled with sunshine that comes from letting gratitude and joy color each day.
