I woke up earlier than usual this morning. My son is going on his Senior trip and I have a lot on my mind. I have to make sure he dosen't oversleep (he's usually good about getting up on time but he had to get out extra early) I have to ask all of the usual questions...Is your cell phone charged? Do you have enough money? There's a chance of rain, did you pack your slicker? A few other questions were asked and of course I got the expected response of "yes mom" to all of them. He knows the drill, I'm just double checking. After he left, my thoughts immediately turned to all of the things that I had to do today. Afterall, I was up extra early. I decided to not waste a moment and jump right into my day. That's when it hit me...The question that I asked myself -- Why am I doing all of this now? I decided at that moment to slow my morning down. I put the kettle on, prepared my favorite tea, pulled out some favorite magazines, took my tea to my bedroom, and had a lovely morning browsing my mags, listening to the birds sing, and watching the morning sunlight filter through the window.
So calming. I'm glad I listened to my inner voice in this instance because so often I do not; there's so much to do each day.
Thanks for taking a moment out of your day to visit with me and if you can, make time to have a Slow Morning.
