The Perfect Morning

The window above my bed is open just slightly and before my eyes are ever open I can hear the birds announcing the morning free for all at the backyard feeders.

The breeze, with only enough vigor to tinkle the wind chimes, charms the perfumed blossoms of the Viburnum through the screen to tickle my nose. I roll over and feel the body heat of the man I love still on the sheet; he is up and headed for the kitchen.

The neighbor’s maple trees have softened the sunrise, and I can see the shadows of the lofty boughs across the mirror on my dresser. As always, little jewels of dust sparkle on the sun fingers that touch the foot of my bed.

With a fresh cup of coffee in his hands and a fresher smile on his face, the hubby returns to wake me.

“Have I told you yet this morning that I Love you?”

“Maybe,” I answer, “but I was asleep, so you should probably tell me again.”

Yes, that is the perfect morning, and I am thankful that I often experience a lovely waking time. But, it ends quickly and I have to rush a shower, speed read my favorite blogs, and then scurry off to my 9 to 5.

Sounds like a lovely way to wake up.

Maybe hubby could bring you toast with golden syrup on to accompany your coffee.

Hi Pamela, and it does sound like a perfect way to start the day too.
Looking at you photos of the road to your valley I was reminded that I am using one of your seascape pics with two seagulls and the surf rolling in as my desktop photo at the moment, it's lovely and I hope you don't mind.

That is a wonderful way to wake up! We sometimes wake up hearing the turkeys gobbling. It is so nice to come out of winter and into spring with open windows and birds singing.

Sounds like a perfect way to start any day, but especially a Monday.
(Much better than the "Get Real Monday" post I did) LOL!!!

Awww I can feel and smell your perfect morning! And moreover I can totally relate to the crash landing of reality. It reminds me of the prayer that says how so far today I've done so well but how in a few minutes I'll wake up and then I'll need all kinds of help. LOL

Thanks so much for visiting my corner this morning. You shared a ray of sunshine with me. ;)

Hugs,
Holly

Aren't you two just the sweetest little couple?

You're right. That was a PERFECT morning.

(I'm very glad you didn't wake up the the "CAW"s of a murder of crows.)

Yes, indeed you have described a perfect morning, and I hope that you have many of them.

You have wedded bliss.

And you are an amazing writer.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, Pamela you're one of the most talented writers I've ever read.

Truly beautiful words painting a truly beautiful picture.

I thought I was dreaming! ...If you really do wake up like that, well, I might be a bit jealous.
