Simple Mornings

1:16 PM

Outside is cold, and the wind is blowing.  I sit sipping tea doing my quiet time and writing in my journal; what a nice simple morning.

Instead of starting up my computer and beginning my writing for the day, I helped my mom make bread and had a talk with my sister; what a wonderful simple morning.

I usually get onto my favorite social network to keep up with good friends and be encouraged in my faith by them; instead I spent the time helping my brother get potatoes ready for baking on this simple morning.

Most mornings I feel the pressure to begin my day to get a lot done.  This simple morning, I ignored that and took the time to do things that were more important.  Things like friendship with my siblings, making a meal that we will all enjoy, and talking like only siblings can.

In our busy and electronic-filled lives we should take more time for the simple pleasures of life.  Sometimes, when we are so busy getting to-do lists done, We should take a morning off and enjoy what we have been missing.

  2. I love this. You are a great communicator. I too feel the pressure to get my work done as soon as i get up and almost always neglect the simple things that are the most important. Thank you.
