It is so peaceful in my home right now. Sun is streaming in through the open windows, the birds are singing outside and all else is quiet with the exception of the occasional passing car. Even the street noise seems peaceful. I love this calm. It washes over me and illicits a feeling of coziness like a soft blanket on a brisk fall evening. Moments like this one come few and far between due to the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Excuse me while I go and soak in this precious time.
