This morning as I was just sitting in my rocking chair, drinking my coffee and watching the birds outside the window, I had a powerful feeling of being so lucky and fortunate that I am able to just sit like this and enjoy the day. So many people are not able to do that.
Today I stayed in my gown and robe a lot longer than usual, just savoring this morning. The sky is overcast and a prediction of rain and ice is in the forecast. Perfect weather for more coffee and just thinking. Remembering and planning but trying not to dwell too long in either place. Stay in the present, I keep reminding myself.
While sitting and ruminating I realized how truly blessed I am to be able to just ease into the day. That was one of the things I looked forward to doing when I retired. So many people are hurrying off to work and I remember being one of them. Those days were good but I am so thankful I don’t have to do that anymore. But to be really truthful, I do sometimes miss that period of my life.
Right now though, I am so thankful to have this warm comfortable home to do all this sitting in and also to have a very dependable coffee pot. No point in having a comfy rocker and a cosy fire if there’s not a hot cup of coffee in my hand.
Spending my mornings like this is the best time of the day. This is my meditation time, my time with God. I like to imagine that God is also enjoying a cup of coffee with me, just sitting quietly and mentally wandering around the universe. Isn’t that awesome, wandering among the galaxies with God? Couldn’t ask for a better traveling companion.
Ending this random thought by saying; Thank You God for another wonderful day.
Until next time,
