Whatever Wednesday: Finding your sunbeam


"DJ on a cold morning" by marymactavish @flickr.com

That dog looks mighty happy, doesn’t he?

Up on the table, warming himself in a sunbeam, not caring what anyone thinks of him.

Have you ever found a sunbeam and stood in it?

The warmth floods your body, brings light to your heart and your soul, and sends a smile to your face.

We don’t do that enough.

Sure we’re supposed to take time to smell the roses and all that, but when was the last time you intentionally found and stood in a sunbeam?

I’ll wait while you mull that over.

I sit in a sunbeam every day the sun is available.

Do you?

You should.

Find your sunbeam.
