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.
