I am enjoying an early morning cup of coffee,
The house is still dark, the furnace is taking the chill out of the air,
my dog Kula is laying at my feet and the cat Stinky is curled up on her chair next to me.
This is my time. As I look at this picture I am reminded of all the cloudy winter days,
and what joy I feel as the sun enters my world once again,
as it did when I was in the mountains, it was like a beam of hope.
It was a surprise to me today to see the heart shape in this picture.
I have looked at this picture how many times before and had never noticed it.
There are so many things we miss in the world everyday,
or have my eyes been shut, and my mind on sensory over load.
Whatever the reason, I am glad I can enjoy the sun on a mountain,
soon the sun will be beaming in my kitchen that faces east.
We have been so blessed to have the sun for about a week now,
my whole attitude has changed. I have noticed people passing with energy and excitement for the day.
No more dragging their feet behind them as they would sullenly have done on those cold cloudy days.
With the arrival of March has brought Spring, maybe for a short time.
I can now think of flowers blooming, the arrival of robins,
fresh rains, rainbows, the budding of the trees,
my lilac bushes providing wonderful fragrance and beauty right out my back door.
I really do love my life, especially this quiet time in the morning.
It is becoming lighter, the birds are chirping at the feeders.
And it is going to be a bright sun shiny day!
So I am off to embrace it.
Be well and enjoy.
