Most mornings I am the first to awaken and I wake everyone else in the house soon after....but some mornings, I let them sleep. I bask in the quiet stillness of a sleepy home. I boil some water for tea and I relax. A few moments of uninterrupted opportunity.
There are days you rush and there are days where time and the weather, insist you slow down. Get cozy, pull out a book or some fiber craft and relish the dark morning. Then slowly, I realize I haven't open the curtains yet and allowed the sun to penetrate.
The chores will wait for me. The to-do list will too. Some times I will use this time to read my Bible, sometimes I start breakfast and sometimes I spend the time playing with the toddler. (Who says having multiple children robs them of one on one time?) Other days, if I'm lucky, I am alone with my thoughts....and prayers.
Having room to think, is a lovely way to begin a day.
