Early morning … the girls are still asleep and the house feels quiet. There’s a slight breeze and the morning air feels cool and inviting. I made a cup of tea, cut some flowers for a little blue bottle I like, took one my favorite books and sat on the porch for some uninterrupted time with myself.
Uninterrupted time is a gift, a blessing, and a necessity for me and probably for you too.
It’s not long before the bumble bee comes by. I watch her making her rounds from bloom to bloom. Nasturtiums, echinacea, salvia, butterfly bush, cosmos. I put my book down and pick up my camera. She doesn’t seem bothered by me. She’s busy flying around, seeking, tasting, making her morning rounds.
Today, perfection is in the quiet morning, the gentle breeze, a cup of tea, a small blue bottle with flowers from my garden, a bumble bee tasting the nectar, and a hummingbird showing her appreciation for each bloom.
Beauty and harmony are ever present – if only, we stop and look.
