A quiet hush

This morning I woke to a wonder-filled world covered in snow. It was so quiet that I could hear the snowflakes landing on the ground. I stood on my doorstep a moment to take it all in. Off to the right, in the distance, I could hear a cardinal beginning the first song of the day. Slightly off to the left and closer, a mourning dove quietly chimed in. No one else had stepped outside yet and the snow was pristine and sparkling and I was so enchanted by it, that I hardly breathed for a little bit.

Morning Hush
Morning Hush

I couldn’t help but think about how mornings like this will be out in the woods. When I truly am the only person around for miles. I think it will be amazing. As will the storms coming across the Sonoran Desert. Or the breeze whispering through the forest trees. I look forward to it all.

Things have been a little hectic around the house, still, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel and I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to breathe a sigh of relief when we get past this week. Until then, I hope you all have had a wonderful morning!
