The quiet before the storm

movingI am sitting here at my home early on Sunday morning, with one of my cats napping in my lap, sipping a cup of coffee, and enjoying the quiet. This is my favorite time of the day before the world is awake and the craziness starts.

By the time you read this, I will be moving my mom from out-of-state to here near me, and I suspect the next few days will hardly be so calm.

But now, I will drink in the peace. I will pray for clarity and strength for the journey ahead, especially for Mama as she embarks on this new life.
