It is snowing (yes, I know it is April). I am cozy in front of the fire. Animals have been fed and given water, the dog has been taken for her morning walk/run. I am fed and content. Life feels good, right now. Yesterday, not so much… and tomorrow? who knows, but right this hour, this minute – I’ve done my chores and other work can wait a few more moments. I’m warm and comfortable; I have enough. I’m aware that I am here. I breathe deep. I know I am loved, needed and important in my little world. I have a ripple effect and I chose to be awake to it all, and it is good right now, this hour, this minute.
