Could be.

I'm hoping for a brand new day today.

Not a day like yesterday. Or the day before. A new day.

I really am.

So I asked my wife if I could put the pot of purple flowers on the front step. She shrugged yes.

And today, looking outside, gazing at the clouds, and staring at the hills at the end of our street and letting the wind wind its fingers in my hair, my eyes sting like it could be.

Could be.

I hope against hope. And I wish I knew for sure.

A word or two my friend
There's no telling how the day might end
We'll never know until we see
That there's gold in them hills
There's gold in them hills
So don't lose heart
Give the day a chance to start
There's gold in them hills
There's gold in them hills.

Thank God for new days--They're always filled with new hope. I hope you got your better day. :)

We saw you in your front yard. We waved at you like crazy people.

People try so hard to find a new day. Sometimes all it takes to find a new horizon is to look up & see it.

Elly Lou said...

Yes. Just yes. A big, purple, flowery yes.

You think Sexsmith was thinking of the Yosemite Sam cartoon that I am thinking of where he says "THERE'S GOLD IN THEM THAR' HILLS!"...

Maybe it's just me.

Funny what moving a pot of flowers can do on your outlook.

Sleep on it.

@Windsmoke Yes he does.
@Mrs4444 Thanks for adding to my hope.
@Chelle That was you? I'm so clueless.
@VinnyC True.
@EllyLou Thank you. I not surprised at all that you understand.
@Alistair That's my new favourite word.
@KevD Absolutely. That's why I thought the first time I heard it and then I actually looked more closely at the lyrics and I have to tell you, for me, it's such a poignant song.
@jlittlejohn Yeah. I tried it. But it didn't work. Make a note of that too.
@Cheeseboy Any little thing is worth a try.
@AC Thanks. Always good advice.
