It's a Saturday morning, and here I sit in the silence of the morning. The house is quiet except for the hum of the bedroom fan and the occasional pitter patter of critter feet. In a house with 4 cats and 5 dogs, someone is always on the move. I love this time of day. There's no one demanding my attention, the "To Do" list hasn't been seen. I am able to steal a few precious minutes to center myself for the day, to find peace, to pray.
From the window beside my desk I can see the goats and Pearl emerge from their houses, the horses are slowly wandering the pasture looking for a pre-breakfast snack. Soon my day will begin, I'll be thrown into the craziness at full speed. These are the moments I savor, that keep me sane throughout my day.
