This morning I woke up to the intoxicating scent of the white hyacinth my mother has placed on the bedside table in my old room. (Bless her heart; she is a woman who pays attention to the details.)
It was dawning outside, there was a bluish tint to the morning light. I got up early and went to get Holger, my parents dog, and invited him into bed with me.
He quickly fell back to sleep while I sat writing my daily morning pages.
A little later, I heard the first bird chirp and I took it as a sign that the world was waking up.
Sitting there, in a warm bed with the company of a best friend I felt a deep sense of gratitude.
What more could I want?
Getting up I let Holger out into the backyard and the chilly morning. (By the way, Holger is the Danish equivalent to the name Waldo. As in “Where’s Waldo”) 😉 I took a moment to breathe in the cold, crisp air. The sun was coming up over the horizon and I got the sense that this day was full of opportunities. Of magic.
So before I go out into the day I just wanted to take a little time to say hi and send a grateful thought to everyone who peeks in here once in a while. You don’t know how much joy you give me – thank you.
Have a wonderful Sunday.
