Sitting outside today I was reminded that the essence of who I am is made up of things I love. Who I am is impacted by life experiences, but what I love is where comfort and love reside and where I find my serenity (Firefly forever).
It’s the sunlight that surrounds and warms me.
It’s the breeze that keeps my senses awake.
It’s the music of nature and of humans that call to my mind and heart. Taking me on a journey to the highest peaks and deepest valleys.
It’s the scent of fall, crisp and inviting. It’s the scent of spring, flowers and new life. It’s the scent of Christmas on cold winter nights.
It’s touch. The hand that pulls me close and the lips that hold perfect kisses, the sweet puppy nose that pushes my hand, the fluffy cat tail that swishes against my leg.
It’s the taste of a delicious cup of coffee or a freshly baked Apple pie or my favorite naan and sauces.
It’s the colors that never cease to captivate me, everywhere I look they greet me.
It’s a million little things that fill my life. Too vast to name. Touching my senses so quickly I often don’t notice them. They’re the things that are frequently felt before they are seen.
They are my Serenity.
My hope is that you each find your piece of Serenity.
