April Shower of photos 2009, #20

An opportunity to be near the shore

Many do with opportunities as children do at the seashore; they fill their little hands with sand, and then let the grains fall through, one by one, till all are gone.
What opportunities are you missing today?

No, no, no...not the big eventful ones you might think.

How about simple opportunities present in your day, things like; thankfulness, gratitude, loving gestures, kindness, peace of soul, charity of heart or mind, pay it forward moments, inner examinations of conscience, showing love for another, warm words, offering a sincere compliment, a quick note to someone who matters to you in your life, smiling until it becomes contagious to others around you like a cheery balm in the midst of a busy day, and so many other multitudes of opportunities present every day in our lives.

What are you waiting for? Make haste, and get your thinking cap on.... (smile) and take action.

This post today now concludes my "April Shower of Photos 2009" entries. It's been so fun playing with angles and photo opportunities in general over the past month. I want to thank my blogging/boating (she lives on a boat!) friend S/V Mari Hal-O-Jen again for not only hosting but challenging me yet again to enter this year's photo challenge. Run over and visit with her and browse through other submissions from those who played along all noted on the right side bar of her blog.
