“Any day I’m vertical is a good day”
…that’s what I always say.
And I give thanks for my health.

If you ask me, “How are you?”
I’ll answer, “GREAT!”
because in saying so, I make it so.
And I give thanks that I can choose my attitude.

When life give me dark clouds and rain,
I appreciate the moisture that brings
a soft curl to my hair.

When life gives me sunshine,
I gratefully turn my face up
to feel its warmth on my cheeks.

When life brings fog,
I hug my sweater around me
and give thanks for the cool
shroud of mystery that makes
the familiar seem different and intriguing.

When life brings the snow,
I dash outside to catch
the first flakes on my
tongue, relishing the
icy miracle that is a snowflake.

Life’s events and experiences
are like the weather –
They come and go,
no matter what my preference.

So, what the heck?!
I might as well decide to enjoy them.
For indeed, there IS a time for every
purpose under heaven.

Each season brings its
own unique blessings…

…AND I GIVE THANKS!

Prevod na srpski

Vremenska prognoza

“Svaki dan kad sam u vertikali je dobar dan”
…to uvek kažem.
I zahvalim se na dobrom zdravlju.

Ako me pitaš kako sam
reći ću ti: “Dobro sam!”
jer kad tako kažem, tako i bude.
I zahvalim se na pravu na izbor.

Kad mi život pošalje crne oblake i kišu,
ja cenim tu vlagu koja donosi
nežno kovrdžanje mojoj kosi.

Kad mi život pošalje sunce,
Zahvalno podignem lice,
da osetim njegovu toplinu  na svom obrazu.

Kad život donese maglu,
ja prigrlim svoj džemper
i zahvalim se na tom svežem
velu tajanstvenosti što čini
da ono što je uobičajeno izgleda drugačije i intrigantno.

Kad život donese sneg,
ja izjurim napolje da uhvatim
prve pahulje svojim
jezikom, uživajući u tom
ledenom čudu pahuljice.

Životni događaji i iskustva
su kao vreme –
dođu i prođu,
bez obzira na to šta ja hoću.

Tako da, šta ima veze?!
Zašto ne bih odlučila da u njima uživam.
Jer zaista, sve na ovom svetu
ima svoju svrhu.

Svako godišnje doba donosi
svoje jedinstvene blagoslove…

…I JA SE ZAHVALJUJEM!
