Okay, now I know those of you who seriously know me are thinking, "Wait a second. I don't always understand Laura but one thing I do know is this: She NEVER calls mornings beautiful! What is wrong with her?!"
(That's exactly what you were thinking, now isn't it?)
Well... I haven't made it through the whole morning (See, now there's the cynical Laura you all know!) but so far, it has me smiling. As I was making my coffee today, I noticed my hibiscus plant had flowered right in front of the window. It's been doing that this year and I have no idea why. It felt like a smile from heaven today, though. I have some paper work I need to take care of at school that I'm really not looking forward to. I am speaking at a church thing tonight, and while I'm really excited, I'm also a bit nervous about the public speaking bit...
BUT through it all, I have the coffee and I know that God made that flower bloom to remind me that He is with me. And that, I think, is what makes this morning so good.
