This morning I woke to my very old cat bravely climbing wobbly into my bed and cuddling. I turned off the alarm clock to savour the moment and decided to change the way I approach the day. I was going to dive right in to work. But I decided instead to take it slow. To allow my heart to beat gently and slower. To allow myself to rest a bit and enjoy the quiet purr of my cat. And to take time. Let the morning unfold. By letting it go, it all gets done.
A coffee, a bagel with PB and Jam…
A knock at the door. I thought it was the pipers (who are refitting the whole building). Instead it was the postman. With a package from Sweden- from my mom and dad’s best friends, Eivor and Rolf.
A collection of letters. Written by mom and dad to Eivor and Rolf since 1968 when we emigrated to Canada. I am stunned. Tears. I am happy I opened up my time this AM to allow my heart to be fully present to this moment.
These are sacred documents and I will savour going through them. And the package included the most beautiful letter to me from Rolf. It could not have come at a more opportune time, as I take stock of what is important.
