Welcome to Morning Thunks, Thoughts and More, where an everyday person needs to just find a positive way to get a morning going. So I try to give a little encouragement and add a few laughs and set our focus on what needs done, while letting you know there is someone else out there going through what you are. << then on Wednesdays we post my weekly blog from CapeCodtoday.com under Blog Chowder that I have written for many years. Hope you enjoy.

Crimson Monday / 7-15-19
Crimson Monday EveryOne
Red sun at night sailors delight, Red sun in morning sailors take warning, that's a great saying if you're a sailor but personally I think, especially with the issues I have with morning, that just seeing morning come and being able to get up and out of bed is reason for jubilations. Ok let's get it straight, no I am not singing with the birds, I am not getting out of bed doing a dance, I am not a happy go lucky in the morning hours. But I am learning that in all things including getting up in the morning, out of bed, and moving about to give thanks, to be joyful, and to start it out with a heart attitude full of gratitude. Joy is what I'm talking about, joy in the heart, now remember joy and happiness are two different things. Trust me I am not happy in the morning getting up the hour I get up. I am not happy to hear that alarm or the birds at the hour they choice to start making noice. But I can be full of joy that am able to to hear the alarm and birds, be full of joy that I can get out of bed, even on a Monday morning, or that i can get dressed if I chose or even go make myself a cup of coffee or tea or pour some orange juice or whatever your heart desires. You see joy is a perspective, and outlook of like. And on a Monday morning sometimes, ok a lot of times it is hard to accept, get with the program that we can still be filled with joy and take it through the day. For many of us that is a faith based center thing, but whether that is your source of joy or what ever it is, we need to find it, lay claim to and take it with us all through the day and the week. It is hot as blue blazes in many of the places that this is being read this morning, so dress appropriate and if need put an extra layer of sun lotion on. grab those hikers and get them on and laced up and take hold that staff cause we have a wicked long hike this morning. Along the way there will be those that need out help, and we will take the time to stop and help, then move it on, or as someone once told us, just do good and move on. even if you have to see them to the next care center. This day, this week is ours to embrace, to take on, to conquer. Are you with me, the day is coming whether you like it or not, so might as well join the party and get that joy in the heart going. Now let do it, and go make us a most Happy, Happy all day long in whatever situation we find ourselves in.
