My hands are warmed by a streaming cup of coffee, my husband brewed for me, as I sit in my corner of the world.
My body is warmed by the first, brilliant rays of the sun as I snuggle down and relax in my favorite deck chair.
My mind fills with beautiful thoughts, the sun rises higher in the sky and I enjoy my first cup of coffee.
I gaze toward the eastern horizon, across the tree tops, into the heart of the city where life is waiting to be experienced. This glorious day begins and offers its challenges and endless opportunities.
I choose to spend my time and this day with all my being.
It is later in the day now, as I sit here in my corner of the world. In my hands I hold a long-stemmed, crystal glass filled with a burgundy colored liquid that my husband poured for me. The conversation is good.
The brilliance of the sun has dimmed and the sky is filled with rich warming colors as its’ last rays disappear over the mountains.
I am happy and filled with love for this person who has placed these symbols of comfort, in my hands.
This day, as everyday, began with promise and a blank slate for me and only me to fill. My mind is at peace and has been enriched for I have achieved my goal.
As I sit here in my corner of the world.
