A Beautiful Day

A Beautiful Day

This photo is from our vacation in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and the saying is something I came across online.  I put the two together after watching Lone Survivor. I woke up the next morning with gratitude in my heart and happiness for the new day.  Perspective is everything. While there are things I want, I have everything I need.
