A Welcoming Wake-up Call
I set my cell phone alarm last night and when it went off this morning, I chose to snooze it and savor my last five minutes in my warm bed. I was currently being held in place by my down comforter and didn't feel the need to get out of the bed yet. As I laid there with my eyes closed, my ears kicked in. The pitter patter of the rain came in loud and clear. For five minutes I listened to the sounds of pure beauty. Then it stopped suddenly, letting me know that it was all right to get up. I love rain showers and I love them even more when I can lay and listen. It was a beautiful way to wake up.
