a snippet from
ordinary sparkling moments
by christine mason miller
"when you are standing 
at the bottom of a mountain
that you have no choice but to climb,
taking one day at a time is
the only thing that matters.
it is the only way you will reach
the top of that mountain,
the only way you will find your
way through the darkness.
it is solid.
it is reliable.
it is like the rising of the sun everyday-
it is something you might not take
much time to notice,
but it is always there,
a reminder that each new day
holds endless possibility."

oh, i know.
excuses are many.
we all have them...
and play that card often.
that's what baby steps are for.
forget that it's eight days into the new already.
today is the first day.
i have had many "first days of the rest of my life"
let go and let God.
welcome to coffee hour.
welcome to this Sunday morning.
just BE.

Wow, "take one day at a time" is something we all know to do but seldom go about things with that strategy. Thanks for an important reminder that most things are possible if tackled "little by little". I love your posts!!! Mickie :)
