In a few minutes I have to get up and start my day. Showering, eating and out the door to work. But for the next 5 minutes, the next 10 minutes I am enjoying the solitude of my living room.
It’s dark and some would say gloomy in my house this morning. BUT there’s a lovely rain happening outside and my youngest has opened all the windows so we can enjoy the gentle sound of the rain drops.
This is my absolute favorite.
I want to sit and savor this moment for as long as I can…
Yesterday the girls and I had a “girls afternoon”. Something we don’t do together very often.. We went and wandered around a local shopping area, had lunch, and had a pleasant afternoon before dropping Rowan off at work –
Pastries, a new cute hat, and awesome tacos for lunch –
I need to remember, especially as they get older, nearing “moving out” age – that I desperately need to take days like this to enjoy them as the wonderful young ladies they are growing up to be.
I don’t know what’s in Jaia’s future yet – she’s only 14, but Rowan – Rowan wishes to move out of the country – Great Britain or Sweden – And I’m not discouraging her – I won’t.
People are wandering now – rummaging through the fridge – dogs are pleading for attention. I’m off to shower and start my day –
Bright Blessings –
