Embracing the Day is a Privilege of Life to be Treasured

As both the title of today’s post and the picture I’ve attached illustrates, embracing the day is a privilege of life to be treasured – preferably with a huge smile of gratitude radiating from our faces such as the one you see on mine in this photograph.

I had good reason to be smiling gratefully and embracing the day when this picture was taken.

It had already been a gorgeous one from the first moments of the sun’s awakening, filled with brilliance and the increasing warmth of sunshine radiating into all of Mother Nature’s hidden nooks and crannies.

And then added to this already rich experience came the heady aromas of pine and willow-scented fresh mountain air that my wife and I had inhaled into our bodies and reveled in as we walked the trail into our bush camp that day.

Simply walking out onto the gravel beach of our lakeside camp and taking in the incomparable view of still waters and soaring peaks ringing the region, like you see in this second image, added immeasurably to our already deep sense of gratitude in being witness to such a pristine day together.

The still waters and soaring peaks - how could you not be grateful for this!

I simply couldn’t help but attempt to express that sense of great gratitude as I sat there on the beach that day and stretched my arms wide in joy to embrace it fully into my being.

My wife’s busy camera managed to immortalize that moment in time, and I find myself referring back to this image often to internally renew the feelings captured by it.

As you can see and as I hope this little story illustrates for you, embracing the day is a privilege of life to be treasured to its fullest on each and every one of those days given to us as part of the gift of Life itself.
