I have been waking early these past few weeks. While everyone stills sleeps, the house is quiet and I have a few minutes to just think. I treasure this time by myself. Instead of leaving to go to the gym or run through the neighborhood, I have been sitting. Most of the time is spent catching up on the internet, reading or knitting. Often I brew myself a cup of tea as well. I enjoy so much of our time together. I would not trade my family togetherness for anything else in the world. However, I do so need a bit of time alone with just my thoughts to keep me company.
