Mindfulness, Creativity and Cat Naps

My new kitchen comes with a garden window...and a kitty.

After months of having our feathers ruffled, my family of three turned family of six is finally beginning to settle in our new home.

I have been nesting.
And noticing.
I have been reconnecting
and pausing long enough
to see the sweet things again.
To look on the brighter, lighter
right-er side.
A sense of peace,
a calm awareness,
a gentle reminder
makes me smile
because I know that not long after
I step back into mindfulness,
my creativity begins to flow.

All thanks to sunflowers and a snoozing kitty in our sunny kitchen window.
There is nothing stopping you, dear child, from being like the sunflowers.
