Morning Reflections on an Ordinary Day

Carol A. Hand

Gazing out the kitchen window

Washing dishes one by one

cloaked in golden light

a glorious gift from the morning sun

Thinking of my lovely daughter



Morning View from the Kitchen Window



About Carol A. Hand

What matters are not the titles I’ve held or university degrees I earned or the size of a house or bank account. It’s really what I’ve learned from ordinary people like me whom I’ve met along the way. They taught me to live with gratitude and give thanks for each new day.
