good start to a new day

I woke to the sun shining through my window. 
The first time I've seen it in days. 
I dared to wear my favorite skirt in the cold mountain air. 
I scraped last night's rains off my frozen windshield
I had to leave earlier than usual. 
I dropped my car off at the shop to get my tires changed. 
I walked to the nearest coffee shop for a pot of tea.
I had time to kill.
I smelled the varieties before making my choice.  
I chatted with the little boy at the table next to me. 
He picked pecans out of his granola and offered them to me.
Finally, I had to say goodbye.
But was reminded what joys can come in even the smallest change of routine.

  1. I hope you took the pecans from the boy. Sometimes the greatest gift is in the receiving.
