"Each morning as I awake, even before I get out of bed, I take a few moments to listen." This sentence is from today's Daily Word. It has so much meaning to me. Each morning here in the north country nature starts coming to life around 4am...and I lay in bed listening to the songs of the birds as well as the silence of an early morning. In that quiet time punctuated by sweet birdsong no thoughts are in my mind but rather I am just quietly being in the moment. From these moments I gather my peace and my strength for the day and before too long the coffee maker is brewing coffee, CJ is fed, and my morning has started.
The moments of depression still happen although not as frequently as before. Over the weekend I could feel depression nudging at the edges of my mind but refused to give it any power...and that time it went away without even a whisper and I was ok.
Today is another wonderful blessing.
