daily life

a tuesday morning moment.

When you sit on the couch with a hot cup of tea with the aim of reading a few more pages in a book and one of the cats jumps in your lap to curl up and purr, you smile. She’s so cute. When the other cat jumps on the couch and curls up next to you, you want the moment to last forever. And you stay as to not disrupt this perfect moment. No matter how many errands you need to run, dishes that need to be cleaned, or things to put away, you just stay. You sit quietly, read through the chapter, and then another, while the cats are getting sleepy. Those are the moments I love. The quiet, not-so-lonely solitude with a good book, a cup of tea, and no hurry to be anywhere but here.

  1. been reading your blog for awhile, but this post was the exact thought going through my brain this morning…i am a teacher, and i am loving these slow mornings right now, of peace and thought and quiet and slow-motion…

    1. When I was sitting down with the cats, I was wondering if anyone else felt like I did at that moment. I am glad to know of at least one other person that enjoys those moments right now. It will be very hard to get back to the students next week…
