What a joy to read this passage! I am reminded to appreciate the miracles all around me every day. For example, I walk every morning at sunrise. I've done this all my adult life, some 40 years now. Every morning I am in awe watching the sunrise as if it is the first one I've ever seen. Each one is unique and each one creates a sense of anticipation for the day ahead. I never tire of this exercise. On the days I am unable to walk for one reason or another I miss this opportunity to connect to the present. Those days are not as much fun as the days when I walk.
