It was then that I started to retrace what the day had been filled with.
A heartfelt letter from a dear friend, bursting with love.
A recognition in faces and words, that something I had done had contributed to their day.
A short ride with my husband, talking about nothing.
A tiredness that was relieved in a nap taken with a soft cover on a overcast day.
Homemade stew, ladled up with wooden dipper into a cherry red mug, followed by homemade chocolate chip cookies.
All interlaced with the picking up and putting down of a book I was meant to read.
And here it was, now 7 PM.
Nothing to show for the day.

The only real waste of the day would have been to have missed the gift:))
Let the day dissolve into peace….
