For Today, November 24, 2012...
I am seeing...the sunlight as it streams in through the window all over the kitchen counter. I see a half decorated Christmas tree in the living room. I see decorations that bring good memories and bittersweet ones.
I am feeling...the cool breeze coming in through the kitchen window. The stickiness of my fingers that got syrup on them. The joy of seeing my house decorated for the holidays.
I am hearing...the coffee maker do its job. Birds chirping in the trees. And silence, because my offspring are still asleep.
I am tasting...bacon, waffles, coffee, syrup. In that order.
I am smelling...very little. The boxes that came down from the attic were covered in dust, causing my allergies to spring to life. Thank goodness for Benadryl. I would have had a sleepless night otherwise.
It just takes a moment to observe your surroundings. Won't you join me?
