Good Sunday morning, dear friends. I hope this finds you well and enjoying a lovely morning. In my opinion, mornings are the best time of day. The birds are singing, the air is cool, and all of nature seems to be happy to greet the day. I find the early morning is such a beautiful time to be alone with my thoughts, be still, watch the sunrise, and count my blessings. And, to wander the garden to see how busy the garden fairies were during the night.
There are many talented writers who also seem to have had a fondness for the early morning. In going through my ‘little book of special things’ I have found a few lines I hope you will enjoy.
“Why I Wake Early” ~ Mary Oliver
“Hello, sun in my face.
Hello, you who made the morning
and spread it over the fields
and into the faces of the tulips
and the nodding morning glories,
and into the windows of, even, the
miserable and the crotchety. . .
good morning, good morning, good morning.
Watch, now, how I start the day
in happiness, in kindness.”
Possibly, just possibly, the world would be a sweeter place if everyone began the day in ‘happiness and kindness.’ I wish I knew how to make it so.
“. . . the older I get the more treasures and hope and joy I find in mornings.” ~ Terri Guillemets
“Outside the open window, the morning air is all awash with angels.” ~ Richard Wilbur
I agree with Terri Guillemets, the mornings always provide hope and joy. Isn’t it a glorious thought to think of the morning air being “awash with angels”? Perhaps, that is why the morning is so sweet and enjoyable.
Not only is the air lovely, but the morning light is divine and one never knows what they may discover.
Dear friends, I hope you have enjoyed your visit. There is much more I could say about this magical time of day, but I do know everyone’s time is precious, and I do not want to take your time reading a lengthy post. However, if you are not a morning person perhaps my thoughts will inspire you to ponder the many gifts that are always provided for our morning enjoyment, especially during this special season of dazzling beauty. All we have to do is wake up and bask in the splendor of a new day. What an amazing privilege.
Wishing you and yours a gorgeous and peaceful day.
And. . .
May every day, in the week ahead, begin with a lovely and joyful morning, just for you.
“A morning glory at my window satisfies me more than the metaphysics of books.” ~ Walt Whitman
