Maybe what you find is something you do not like very much … then you put away the box wondering what to do with the present … But, if the next day you find another present, you would open it also and, if this time you find something inside that you like very much … A memory from someone that is far away … or just a beautiful flower from somebody that remembered you …
This happens every day, but we do not realize it . Every day when we wake up, it is there, before us, a present sent to us by God … a whole day to use in the best possible way.
Sometimes it comes with problems, issues that we do not seem to be able to solve. Sometimes it comes with sadness, deception, even tears … But other times it comes full of surprises, happiness, success & achievements.
What is important is that every day we receive a present, wrapped especially for us while we sleep: THE NEXT DAY. We are presented this box with colored bows, no matter what the day brings.
That day when we wake up, every morning is a PRESENT … the present that life gives us. It is not always what we wish or what we hope for … But it is the best for us, what we need most, what we have to learn … what we need to grow …
Open your present every day, giving thanks first to our Creator that gave it to you, without thinking what is inside the box. If today you don’t receive the present you wanted, wait for the next one … & appreciate what you received today. Tomorrow open your present with love & enthusiasm because one day your dreams & the life plan for you will come inside the box, beautifully wrapped for you.
May you have a day full of blessings in which you can feel the loving presence of your Creator, & may the present of every day bring you peace, spiritual growth & enlightment on all we still have to learn about every day.
