Morning is my favorite time of the day. It's my quiet time. My very best thinking time. And I am blessed to be the only early riser in my family, so I get to have my mornings all to myself. I have noticed changes in the mornings here recently. Spring is in the air, even on the coldest mornings. I can feel it. Perhaps it is the angle of the sun or the chorus of birdsong so very early. It is the earliest stirrings of awakening from the long sleep of winter, and I feel a kind of hopeful anticipation growing all around me. The same feeling I have every morning of a fresh new day. It's amazing to me how life repeats itself in cycles all around us. Our lives, the seasons, a new day, all follow the same cycle of birth and life and sleep and renewal. Isn't that just a wonderful thought?
Have you read Tuck Everlasting? It is a magical, beautifully written story about a girl who discovers the secret to eternal life and then has to decide if she wants to live forever....or not. I read it in one evening - couldn't put it down. If you're looking for a good read, I highly recommend it.
Wishing you all a lovely Valentine's Day this weekend. Share a little love with absolutely everyone you can. The world needs more love in it.
