It was a soft music all its own. It had a steady rhythm and subtle changes. It was like a gentle, winter lullaby.
This morning I am grateful to just listen. I'm grateful to not kick my mind into overdrive with labels and decisions. I'm grateful to just listen and enjoy this gift from nature. I'm grateful to receive the call from my husband that his commute to work was safe. And I'm grateful to have this short time to myself before I launch into a very busy day of my own. I am grateful for this moment.
What sounds do you hear around you in this moment? Take just a minute or two to listen to the soft hum, sounds, or silence around you. How do the sounds feel? Are they peaceful sounds as my morning started?
The soft hum of the refrigerator and the gentle breaths of two dogs laying nearby are my new melody. I can no longer hear the music of precipitation outside. And yet, this is a nice music as well.
May today bless you with gentle music to support your day. May you find peace in the moments in between and comfort in listening without defining. Have a beautiful day!
