I love being surronded by my family. But sometimes the greatest gift is a second alone.
Gus and Blip are in the other room, I can hear laughter.
The kittys are prowling in the back yard.
The world is still moving.
I'm free to just enjoy a rare few seconds of peace in my own thoughts.
Cup of hot tea in hand as I sit on my bed in mediation.
The feel of refreshment as I put on my scarf and shoes and get up to go down stairs.
I am now ready for our bi weekly trip to the farmers market and a busy day with the ones I love.
Knowing that I got to visit my mind for a few seconds that day makes me thankful.
And knowing I don't have to stay alone all day makes me thankful as well....
