I have a million things on my TO DO list for today. It's not unique in that way. Unfortunately most days are the same. I'm sure you experience this quite often or everyday as well. This morning I woke up and my mind started to tick through the list, wondering where to start first, what will be next, and if I'll even get half of it done.
You know what I did?
I made my coffee, put some of the perfectly ripe strawberries in a bowl, sat down, and enjoyed ten minutes of this glorious Saturday. Maybe I could have marked something off my list in that time or maybe not. What I do know is that the strawberries are juicy and the coffee perfect, the sun is rising and the list will still be there. So why not take a few minutes each day to appreciate a moment of peace before we throw our minds and selves into the chaos of another busy day?
I'm in Austin, so the strawberries are still growing strong in our Central Texas sun. They're probably still readily available in your area as well. Grab some before they're gone. Oh and maybe I should make strawberry daiquiris this evening. An ode to the berry in another form. ha!
