Today I am grateful for
Eight full hours of
Wake up in the same position I laid down in
In bed early
without an alarm
“Now don’t get used to this, it was only one night…”
“You mean I rally get to pee at 5:30am? That’s unusual!”
… and I am wide awake at my favorite time of the day.
Early morning quiet darkness
sitting on the front porch
in the chilly morning air
literally hearing nothing but crickets
an occasional car going by
and a small plane engine firing up from the nearby county airport.
The birds are still asleep…
My soul is still
there is peace in my heart
and I am grateful!
PS- I just heard a bird! Time to wake up and start the day!
