Reflections – August 2017
It’s a splendorous day, sunny and bright. I am sitting on my deck contemplating the beauty around me. Trees, birds, flowers such incredible gifts of nature. I am overcome by the sense of wellness that I feel as I take in the warmth and light of the sun.
Sunshine, rays brilliantly covering my body and bringing a sense of tranquility and calmness as I breathe the fresh, quiet air. In and out, each breath bringing clarity, in and out. I sit quietly for a while taking in the splendor of the moment.
This moment of repose, this quiet time restores my balance. I feel satisfied. I am now open to receive the gifts of the day. Beautiful life, what a treasure. A moment of gratitude slips by to meet the pounding of hammers, workers speaking loudly and I suddenly return to the fact that my little sanctuary is next to my neighbors’ construction site.
What craziness! I smile knowing that my moment in peace has prepared me for the challenges of the day.
