I awoke to nothing. Yet to many possibilities....
No little feet stepping toward my bed.
No cabinet doors opening, the independent ones looking for morning foder.
No showers going, no coffee brewing, no voices, no questions, no movement.
The children on holiday with cousins.
God bless Aunt Mandy. My soul needed this. This quiet. This morning of mine.
I wouldn't trade those crazy kids, the chaos or even the arguments. But one morning alone...wow!
Rest. You need it. Of all the disciplines it is most divine. Schedule it if you have to.
