Inspired by V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #75: Satisfying
Take a moment for enjoyment, particularly the satisfying kind, and drop us a line to share.
The morning sun.
A steaming mug of coffee.
The day’s newspaper.
There’s nothing like it – particularly when you are retired, nest emptied…with no place you have to go.
I remember visualizing this possibility years ago…back in the days of hectic mornings. Getting kids ready for school. Homework! Lunch money! Permission slips! Hat! Coat! Ready Set Go!
Getting myself ready for work. Both paid and unpaid. And out the door before 8 am. Breakfast eaten in gulps. That ever important coffee…waiting until I arrived at my office. To be sipped throughout the morning…lukewarm to cold.
Mornings are different now…
The most satisfying part of my day is the uninterrupted time I have to eat breakfast. While I…slowly and quietly…wake up. And honor the part of me that is NOT a morning person.
And then…the highlight: I can enjoy drinking my coffee while it’s hot. As I read the local newspaper. A real paper. Without feeling guilty when it takes an hour…or more.
I quickly scan…and choose what to read first…
Until I find something positive…
…for a satisfying start to the day.
