Besides a soft breeze coming through the open window, the sounds of nature drift in too. This morning I was awake by several birds talking in the backyard. We have a number of Blue Jays, Cardinals, and Robins as well as some smaller birds I am not as good at identifying. I don not know which ones are having their early morning chat but it is a comforting way to wake.
As they continue their pre-sunrise meeting I cannot help but pause and listen. Partly it is my brain still being half asleep and partly it is the love of their message. I imagine it is an inspirational message to enjoy the day, feel the wind beneath their wings, and truly live in each moment. Am I glorifying? Absolutely. A strong imagination is one of my favorite attributes.
I'm grateful to enjoy nature and feel a connection to the wildlife around me. I'm grateful for their message this morning. I'm grateful to have slept deep in between the nightly interruptions of children needing things. I'm grateful to have the windows open and feel just a little closer to nature. I'm grateful for the full moon yesterday and nature's choir this morning. I'm grateful to be able to enjoy these connections and beauty.
What is your favorite sound in nature? What is your favorite thing about having the windows open?
May today remind us to connect to nature in whatever way speaks best to our heart. May the songs we hear be positive and the weather be a loving embrace. Have a beautiful day!
