My Wish For You
Last night the hubs toddled off to bed and left me in the living room watching a show about the wonderful places to eat in Paris, France. When the show ended I turned off the TV and the light and sat in the dark for a while. The window was open and the cool air rushing in felt like cool silk against my arms. Wafting in on the breeze were the night sounds of the city; the murmur of voices, the swish of traffic on a nearby main artery, the rustle of leaves, the sleepy chirp of a bird settling in for the night and the faraway voice of a dog protecting its property from who knows what. After a bit, I got up and closed the living room windows and checked the door, wandered out into the dark kitchen and watched two young rabbits dash across the yard when I closed the kitchen window. I stood for a moment enjoying the twinkle of solar lights up and down the street and the warm glow of porch lights. It was so peaceful. I felt so comforted. I wandered off to bed and left my window open so I could go to sleep listening to the city as it settled down for the night. My wish for you, whoever you are, where ever you are...is that you experience this feeling of peace and serenity in your life and that you take the time to fully appreciate it. These small moments are a gift to treasure.
