The {good} Morning After

A night in the open air, and the slices from the baker's loaf have hardened. Dishes were rinsed last night before I climbed the stairs to bed, but didn't quite make it into the dishwasher. There had been a little wine, an 'everyone bring something' dinner, and hours of relaxed conversation with friends. As I sliced a new piece of bread and headed to the toaster, an easy smile floated from my heart, to my lips and all the way to my eyes. We've weathered years of friendship. Years of our children's friendships. And are alive to laugh about it - together! 

I stood at the sink, and played back my mental tape from our dinner. We'd done books, work, kid's romance/schooling/etc, hair cuts, current challenges and {yes} took a few steps down memory lane. 

And it was easy. 
And it was safe.

So when the birds started chirping this morning, I woke up with a light heart. The light heart that comes from time spent with girlfriends. Trusted, honest, funny, spiritual girlfriends. 

A cool breeze, gentle morning light, coffee, toast and a happy heart. I'm delighting in the moment.
