Two more of our brave soldiers killed in Afghanistan.....
Fires rage through Los Angleles.....
Nine year old girl found strangled.....
The only bright spot was Jaycee Dugan discovered after years of abuse though what that poor woman's been through is anybodys guess.....
And exactly seventy years ago today Hitlers troops invaded Poland, the start of WW2.....
This was the news this morning at 6am!
I'd woken early, crept downstairs without disturbing DH with every intention of making a drink.
I don't know what made me switch the radio on but that's what I listened to.
As I stood in the kitchen looking out on to the beautiful golden glow of the sunrise and listening to the birds singing it made me realise just how lucky I am.
I went outside to sit on my favourite seat beside our pond.
The koi were gliding around like miniature submarines, a robin was singing it's little heart out in the cherry tree and the sun was spreading it's wonderful glow across the morning sky.
It was so peaceful.....so quiet.....it made me cry!
Now I'm not a cryey person, never have been, but I thought of all the turmoil, sadness and worry in this beautiful world of ours...mostly manmade... and all the blessings I have.
I've had my share of illness and sadness but life at the moment is good...very good.
I and my family are healthy, happy and secure.
We live a good life, not rich wealth wise but rich in every other way.....love, happiness, faith, family, friendship and more!
My heart goes out to all the people who carry such heavy burdens of loss and sadness and I give thanks for the great and wonderful gifts I have in my life.
For me, at least, as Louis Armstrong once sang...'It's a wonderful world...'
