It’s nice when your gratitude of the day comes in at an impressively early 7:51 am.
It’s impressive that I was up at that time, even more so that I found reason to be grateful, at that time…
But I know the time, because that’s when I took the below pics:
It was a busy day for the 3 of us: me, Hubbie and baby girl. We had a chock-full day of appointments and places to be and drop-offs, and that was all before my work shift started later this afternoon. But as I got up early, opening blinds and getting things ready to start our day, I spied the above views out of our front window.
The view of the water was more of an exciting novelty when we moved in, I won’t lie. But now, we are used to it. Over time, we have found ourselves sometimes forgetting to look out and enjoy what lies naturally before us.
But just because we forget, doesn’t mean we don’t appreciate.
And this morning, in the cold stillness, the heater ramping up in the background, with the only other sound being my breathing, standing alone looking out the window with Hubbie and baby girl still in their respective beds, well, it was lovely.
A beautiful, peaceful, still and serene moment, enjoying the calm of being at one with myself.
Now I know why my Mum loves getting up early all the time 🙂
