our truck is in need of some minor repair, and the only time the shop could get it in was 7am on a saturday morning. so here i am, sitting next door at a local coffee shop, watching the sun rise and catching up on email. i have to admit it's kind of nice to be forced to slow down.

typically right now i'd be sleeping in... then getting up to scurry around the house and clean, do laundry, make a list for errands. instead i am sitting still, wide awake, drinking an excellent cup of coffee with nothing pressing to do... and nowhere to be until the shop calls to say my vehicle can return to the road. it's moments like this that make it easier to see the "big picture", and realize how incredibly blessed my life is.

now, off goes the computer... i'm going to spend some cherished moments actually reading a book.
