I'm grateful to wake to the soothing sounds of early morning. I'm grateful to wake with the rest of the house still sleeping. I'm grateful to sit in my favorite room and gaze out at the back yard in its dark, wooded calm. I'm grateful for the sound of the distant train and the sounds of the insects, birds, and squirrels as they sing their morning song. I'm grateful for the sound of running water and the ease I will feel as I let it run over my head, washing away the night. There are so many things to hear when I stop to listen. Even while I work the clicks of my keyboard add to the melody of the sunrise song going on outside. The soft sound of dogs breathing as they settle back into sleep, awaiting the day. It is such a beautiful time of day and I'm grateful to be witness and participant. What are your favorite sounds of the morning? What sounds bring you peace and gratitude throughout the day? May your day be blessed with the beautiful sounds of peace and may you find the time to listen to its song. Have a beautiful day!
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
