Upon Waking

Upon waking each day, my first words to my heart always are, 'Tell me all your news of Love.'" 

         Those lucky enough to lead blessed lives should wake up every day with the thought of gratitude in their heart. Beyond good health, which is a blessing never to be taken for granted, perhaps what we're most thankful for and excited about is our news of Love. As it should be, Germaine De Stael said: “Love is the emblem of eternity; it confounds all notion of time; effaces all memory of a beginning, all fear of an end.” When the right one comes along, you're unsure of when Love began, but you are sure of wanting to wake to their news, and if not their smile, their text. It is another blessing that you can survive forever in the hearts of those who loved you. Love challenges the traditional idea of time. "Everyone once, once only." - Rilke

Blessed (1995), Elton John
