Slice in the Morning Light #SOL21 Day 21/31

Do you know how hard it is to get out of bed on a weekend morning with a view like this?

I know. I am blessed. From my window I watch the morning star fade from view as the sun lifts higher into being. I watch and listen as the world comes to life and everything is made fresh and new once more. As the sun peeks its bright head above the trees I read just a little while longer in peaceful bliss. And when the light is just right I pick up my pen and write my slice right from my warm and cozy bed.

Throughout the month of March I will be participating in the Slice of Life Story Challenge with the community of writers over at Two Writing Teachers. Each day I will post a draft of a story detailing a small snippet from my life. This will be my sixth year participating, and each year I marvel at all the small moments I would have missed in my life if not for this challenge. I am grateful to Stacey Shubitz, Betsy Hubbard, Beth Moore, Kathleen Neagle Sokolowski, Melanie Meehan, and Amy Ellerman for hosting this wonderful event!

  1. Simply stated so well! If only we could stay in bed and write the day away. I bet you would have some great colors, words, vibes from that window. Have a nice day! We’ve got it all ahead of us!

  2. Lovely! Just stay there—that’s what Sunday mornings are for!!! I have to have the blinds shut right bc I like it dark, but when the blinds are open I could stay in bed watching the clouds and birds drift and swoop by.

  3. Stunningly beautiful, Christine – the photo, the view, your description. The morning star fading, the sun coming up – reading and writing – what more could a soul ask? ❤
