I can almost hear him whistling the tune “Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it’s off to work we go,” when Matt Gilkeson captured this beautiful sunrise on his way to work in Alabama.
Since I don’t personally know Matt, I found myself wondering what he was doing for work in Alabama. Then I wondered what everyone who sees this does for work…and if they noticed the Sunrise on their way.
Then I wondered if others feel as happy-go-lucky as I imaged Matt felt when he took this photo. I certainly do this morning.
Whistle while you work…….,

P.S. Would love to share the sunrise you saw this morning on your way to work. Send it to contact@Superpowers365.com or PM me on Facebook, we’ll mention you in the photo and let you know when it posts.
When I received this sunrise photo today, it took me by surprise. I woke up thinking about how obsessed I’ve become with sunrises. My friends from all over the country are sending these beautiful, inspiring photos that remind me of the one thing we all have in common no matter where we are, what we’re doing, how our lives are going, the sun will always rise.
Today I’m going to have a blood test for a surgery scheduled next week.
The surgery is breast reconstruction. Two years ago this month (breast cancer awareness month) I found out I had breast cancer. My body rejected the expanders after the bi-lateral mastectomy two years ago.
I am just now ready to brave the reconstruction again. As surgery day get’s closer, I get a little more anxious every day. Several times I’ve even considered cancelling everything. This morning I woke up even more anxious.
Then my friend sent me this photo. She didn’t even know about the surgery or my fears.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, the message I got loud and clear is “I’m Here For You – It’s Time.”
Thank you Susan Moore for capturing this incredible sunrise. And thank you Marsha Lewis for sending it to me with Susan’s permission.
Somehow through the many years of our long distance friendship my high-school friend Marsha has instinctively known how to hold my hand when I needed it most.

Check out the Somos Live! Benefit concert October 14, 2017. The sold-out concert will air on NBC, BET and other stations in support of hurricane relief efforts for the people of Puerto Rico.
When we work together, we make a difference.
Nothing in my life compares to the devastation people of Puerto Rico are experiencing in the aftermath of hurricane Maria this year.
This beautiful photograph was taken by Cipriana Williams just seven months before the hurricane destroyed the entire island. The sunrise is likely still just as glorious every day there. However, if the camera were turned in the other direction, we would see a dramatically different view.
“What happened in Texas and Florida were disasters,” said W. Craig Fugate, who was FEMA administrator under President Barack Obama. “What happened in Puerto Rico was a catastrophe.” Read more in this NY Times article.
There are many people doing incredible good to help the people of Puerto Rico. Here are just a few. Click on their names to learn more…
My good friend Tammy Holyfield travels the country helping professionals reach their personal and professional goals.
When I opened this beautiful photo she sent me, I was in awe and am fascinated by the magic of every sunrise.
The sun rises and I am very grateful for that new, fresh start opportunity every day.
The sun rising is also an event experienced by everyone on the planet, even when we aren’t paying attention. I only seem to experience the beauty of the sun rising occasionally, so I decided to change that.
I’m gathering photos of sunrises from friends around the world. If you’d like to experience this magic, follow Superpowers365.com. I’ll share a new sunrise photo every day.
My goal is 365 different sunrise photos. I’ve received enough for 25 days so far.
If you’d like to send me one, you will receive photo credit and I’ll let you know when it is published.
