Whatever we are waiting for – peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance – it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart. Sarah Ban Breathnach
A schedule-free weekend is beginning.
A hint of cooler weather is coming from the open window.
My eleven year old dog companion is curled up on the nearby sofa.
There are three books waiting for me to pick up again.
My bills for the month have been paid.
My notebook and pen are within easy reach.
The coffee is hot and rich.
The birds are singing.
Perhaps these are the “things” I’ve been waiting for.
