Let’s Make the Most of This Beautiful Day

As I started my day, I looked at the curtains near my bed. The early morning sun was just beginning to shine through (I have sheer curtains and there’s a reason for that…I’ll get into it at a later entry). I smiled and thought to myself, Sunrises are a sign/promise from God of a new beginning. This past week has had its ups and downs everywhere, but at least seeing the sunrise made me feel a bit happier. It’s the start of a new day, a new beginning.

As I waited to eat breakfast this morning (thanks to my thyroid medicine I can’t eat for an hour after taking it), I signed into Facebook and as I did a song came into my head.

It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood,
A beautiful day for a neighbor,
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?

It’s a neighborly day in this beautywood,
A neighborly day for a beauty,
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?

I have always wanted to have a neighbor just like you,
I’ve always wanted to live in a neighborhood with you.

So let’s make the most of this beautiful day,
Since we’re together, we might as well say,
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?
Won’t you be my neighbor?

Won’t you please,
Won’t you please,
Please won’t you be my neighbor?

Spoken: Hi television neighbor, I’m glad we’re together again….

I kept singing part of the song over and over again today. I kept singing in my head, “Let’s make the most of this beautiful day!” I think because I kept this message with me all day today it has been a beautiful day and I kept thinking about what would have happened if I had met Fred Rogers. I never thought about it until today, but he was definitely one of my role models growing up and even to today. I had no such notion or words like “role model,” “idol,” or “leader” when I watched Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood growing up, but he was definitely that and still is to this day.

I imagined what it would be like if he came to visit me and I was a guest on his show. I imagined what it would be like to explain to children and adults what it means to be Type 2 diabetic and work in a cookie/ice cream store; also what it would be like to be a business owner. I would have been right at home and just so comfortable. Then I figured why imagine when I could/can do that right here and now to anyone that I come in contact with and that will listen to me. Surely there are lots of people who are curious or don’t know as much as they think they do about all that.

So today was a beautiful day and I made the most of it while at home and at work. I enjoyed my day. Thanks, Mr. Rogers; thanks for helping me make this a beautiful day! 😀

Love and prayers!

I enjoy: my family, my faith life, photography, drawing; writing, working on cars, basketball, football, and baseball. These are just a few of the many things I like...you'll just have to read my blog to know me better to know more of them. Other things you may not catch on that I enjoy are: cats, angels, ballroom dancing, Christian music, camping (being one with nature and all of God's creations), traveling, cherry and apple blossoms, and the colors blue (in all shades), white, black, dark purple, and SOME shades of pink. (Rainbows are cool, too. And I'm NOT a lesbian! Although, I'm friends with some gays and lesbians as well as a few transgenders.) I am Roman Catholic.
