I’m writing with a timer for 5 minutes on the prompt…
“A Few of My Favorite Things”
The silence of night’s end. Voices sleep, activity fades to memory, and I curl up in bed with a dim light and book. For a few quiet moments relaxation trumps sleep and I sit in complete peace.
The feel of slipping into a bed with clean white sheets.
Greeting of my first cup of coffee. I’m not too fond of the second, but the first cup I need.
The feel of my eleven-year old son slipping into my arms for a hug.
I love seeing my daughter mix outlandish outfits topped with an even more silly hat.
The feeling of complete, when my husband slips into bed after a late night of work.
A glass of cold diet coke in the break of a full day.
Listening to the break of waves on the beach, the chatter of gulls, and calmness of ocean.
The feeling of sunshine on my face, burning through the layers of me.
So here’s what I realized. I love my bed, my family, and the summer. Not necessarily in that order!
