Like many of you, I have worked outside my home most of my life. When I was working it seems as though I never had time to really take care of myself as I should have; always rushing here, rushing there.
To actually sit down and have breakfast with my husband was simply unheard of.
Now that we have both been retired for sometime, things have changed dramatically.
We sit down every morning with our coffee and the paper and actually have breakfast. Now it isn't always the perfectly healthy breakfast...but it is breakfast none the less. (O: It is our time to catch up with the news and talk to one another about our plans for the day.
Even while traveling in our motor home, we do exactly the same thing .....taking time to enjoy each other's company, catching up with the news and just being calm before starting the day's business.
It is a time we both enjoy.
It is a ritual we would not do away with for anything.
How do you start your morning dear friends?
Do you have special rituals?
