wonderful it was to laugh and talk til late hours about anything and everything. But part of me is struggling. I like my mornings pretty structured. I like to get up, get breakfast ready. I like for Jonathan to start practicing his piano right after breakfast, and after that, start his home school studies. It's after 9: a.m. and I'm still in my pajamas and breakfast is still a question mark. Normally, unheard of! We are all struggling to wake up and get moving.
Time with friends is few and far between anymore with busy lives and distance between us. I have a choice to make. I could choose to be annoyed that my little structured world is not happening today. But, today I'm choosing to enjoy the slow morning and not rush. I choose to embrace how it felt admiring my new friend's garden and talking about strawberries and okra. I choose to enjoy the memory of conversation over coffee, cake, and watermelon. We don't always get moments like these -time to just talk and not have to be anywhere at any particular time. Time is a gift. I choose to relish the 'grace moments'.
