There are so many things to be grateful for when you first wake up. I think one of the best parts are all of the possibilities. Every day there are 86,400 possible moments that can change your life, the lives around  you, or a complete stranger. There’s so much potential in what a new day can bring. If yesterday was a terrible day, today has the potential to be the best one yet. You never know what new things are awaiting you just around  the corner.


I think you can view the unknown  in  1 of 2 ways. You can either view the future with hesitation and worry. Or you can take a page out of Queen Elsa’s book (Frozen 2) and march confidently into the unknown. Whether or not you belt out a song  is totally up to you. 


Most importantly, however, is that  we enter each day with a grateful heart. The Lord has given us this  one life. Think of how much calmer and more appreciative of all of the wonders in our lives if we woke up and counted our blessings instead of listing all of the potential problems.


I hope as kids and teachers go back   to school, lives start to begin again, and we go about our daily lives that we remember all of the gifts God  has blessed us with.
