I love crisp mornings. Today it was a bit damp and foggy – an Irish morning. Wrapped in my cozy robe and my feet off the cool floor – I sit and take a deep breath. There is nothing better than waking early and sitting with a hot cup of tea. It has always been my favorite time, a time to get a grip on the day, a time to think clearly before the children get up or a time to just relax before a day at work.
The more productive I became with my thoughts and plans, the more I loved this time of the day. So many wonderful things are planned during this time. Birthdays, holidays, special meals, vacations – I seemed to have always planned the fun things during this time – I guess that says a lot for the mood a little peace and quiet can put you in.
I know that many of you may like to sleep in but do try getting up early, before the house and starting your day with silence – a time just for you. You and those around you will benefit from this. It’s a time to remember and to plan the important things - before the rush of the day makes you forget.
