A Feeling ~

This morning, I woke up at 4:30. The house was dark, except with the glow of my little accent lamps and night lights leading me to the coffee pot. As I started to make the coffee, I could hear the wind through the sweet melody by the way my wind chimes were flowing. I stepped outside to grab a couple logs of wood to start the fire and could hear the rain drops hitting the water in the pool. I breathed in deeply and exhaled slowly. Ahh ~

As I sat still, in my favorite green chair by the fire, I let my body wake up slowly and just listened... I let myself be there in the moment; be a part of it, accepting it fully.

My day is just getting started ~

I am going to make myself a bowl of creamy oatmeal with sliced banana's, sprinkled brown sugar and finely chopped walnuts. Mmm...



  1. Oh that sound yummy...and I feel the fuzzy socks, and my warm throw..... I with you!

  2. What a wonderful way to begin one's day.

  3. Definitely sounds like the way I want to wake up. I wake up and everything has to happen quickly, shower, get dressed, make a coffee, and hit the road or I'll be late for work. It's the same pretty much everyday.

  4. Lovely post Angela. Living in the moment is the only way.
    Big hugs

  5. what a warm cozy feeling I know how and what you mean by being in the moment especially in silence

    love you mija
