Every New Morning

(Marsh under Golden Skies by Granville Redmond,
1872-1935, American painter)

“Trig is almost 4 years old now, and every morning when he wakes up, he pulls himself up, rubs the sleep out of his eyes, looks around, and then starts applauding! He welcomes each day with thunderous applause and laughter. He looks around at creation and claps as if to say, ‘OK, world, what do you have for me today?’” ~ Sarah Palin, from her article in Newsweek, “Sarah Palin on Raising a Special-Needs Child”


Every day is a fresh beginning,
Listen my soul to the glad refrain.
And, in spite of all sorrows
And older sinning,
Troubles forecasted
And possible pain,
Take heart with the day and begin again.

~ Susan Coolidge (1835-1905), American poet, editor, and writer of children’s stories, including What Katy Did
