What a pretty sunrise this morning! Did you see it? I am up at 5:00am each day to make breakfast for my wonderful husband and see him off to work. I usually spend the next two hours doing homework. It's so quiet here always, but the early morning is particularly peaceful as the cows, horses, and that silly old mule haven't awakened...well, at least their tummy's aren't growling yet. Most of my 4 neighbors are gone to work by six o'clock, and I go out to have coffee on the deck, plan my day and let the dog run around. I am so blessed to be able to have time like this, and I am very grateful, never taking it for granted. In my daily readings I came across this Quiet Corners reading by William Arthur Ward,
"Practice the art of aloneness and you will discover
the treasure of tranquility. Develop the art of
solitude and you will unearth the gift of serenity."
