Today I love the glowing thin line of dawn in the east. I love how it looks like the edge of a knife that has cut the trailing end of the blanket of night off to let the day shine through. I love how every morning looks so similar and yet so different. I love when I hear myself saying under my breath “Ah, one of those mornings … this one looks really great.”
Today I love sticky buns at breakfast time. I love donuts and crullers and bars and squares and tarts, but there never seems to be many in my house, so when there is something like sticky buns, I realize just how much I love having a treat like that at breakfast time. In the strange and wonderful vernacular of social media … Omnomnomnomnom.
Today I love being on light duty. I love that even though my back is not recovered fully I am able to do some things and I will still get to feel that sense of accomplishment. Someday I’m going to learn how to enjoy that for longer than a few seconds and then I’ll really love accomplishing things. I love that people are always finding things for me to do. That’s satisfying. I love that one of the most repeated phrases I hear is “Do you know how to …?” and I’m surprised at how often I’m able to say “Yes, I can do that.”
Today I love coffee and I love the way it seems to have been created to go with sticky buns and breakfast. I love that it is the perfect drink for watching the sunrise, and that the taste is so much like the wonderful warm glow of the sun’s light when it is sitting up on the edge of the day, dabbing its first splashes of light on the eastern facing sides of everything. Coffee and sunlight, it couldn’t be a better morning.
