let the quiet of the early morning set the tone for the remainder of the day

Renewal

The freshness of a simple morning can make all the chaos and bewilderment recede. I am renewed each day.

Before the neighborhood is filled with the sounds of reving snowblower engines, the cardinals are singing, the juncos wear their tuxedos to dine at the feeders and the dogs leap into the snow with more elation that you can imagine. This is a perfect morning.

A chilly windy sunrise with a hot cup of tea. Not what I expected this July morning, but my heart is happy with the surprise.

I’m reveling in these cool summer mornings. Seeming unusual after years of blistering hot summers, they refresh every cell with optimism and pleasure. I stand on the patio surrounded by green hope and faithful blossoms. Another day has come for me, and I feel deeply grateful. Peace is mine. It always was.
