Regular Days

It has been a bit of a struggle getting back into the "regular" days. My empty nest is a little too quiet, after the hustle and bustle of the holidays. It's not that I dislike the quiet. There is just a different pace and rhythm to the days that take some getting used to.

I need to remember the peace and tranquility of early morning; the kitchen all to myself and no sound except the coffee brewing. The peace of watching the birds and squirrels outside the window and if I am lucky, spotting the deer in the woods, camouflaged by nature.

I need to catch up on my reading and lose myself in a good book, with a cup of tea and my puppy sitting by my side. If cold, I can turn on the fire with the flip of a switch and it is cozy, warm and calm.

I need to use my daily walks for meditation and peace, as I walk in the snow through the woods. There is beauty all around - like an amazing sunset, where the sky looks like it is on fire.

The peaceful rhythm of "regular days" where the blessing is in the silence.
