I heard the birds sing this morning. I always hear them at around six. They sing in chorus and the song gets louder. Everyday, it feels like they are waking us up and rejoicing for another day has come.
My heart leaps for joy knowing that I am alive. I try to open my eyes. My mind is a blank slate. It takes a while for me to remember what day it is. It takes some processing to figure out what to do, does my son go to school? Is my husband going to work or is it a weekend and there is no need to rush? Before I get up:
Dear God, thank you
For the sunrise
For the strength and the health to live another day
For keeping everyone safe through the night
For the restful sleep
For this busy day
For the quiet moments
For the hopes, plans, dreams, and inspiration
For the realizations and all other things in my head
For my family and friends
Please bless us and keep us all under your loving care
Under Your loving protection
Bless us with a beautiful day
Then I rush to the washroom and work in my kitchen. My day begins.
Happy Monday, have a blessed Holy Week, Restful Vacation, Wonderful Week!
