Beloved husband has taken the girls out so that I could have a sleep. I have woken up naturally (such a rarity for me!), lingered in bed for a time, and wandered out into a perfectly peaceful house. This is absolute bliss :)
And it amuses me to think that this is so wonderful right now--and I am enjoying it for all it is worth--then in time, maybe an hour maybe two, this very same situation to me will feel less joyful, then eventually would turn to pain and loneness. Of course my loved ones will be back before it gets to that but it intrigues and amuses me to think how wonderfully subjective and fleeting bliss, and all feelings, really are.
But enough thinking, I am off to enjoy this perfect moment of peace as it is. right now.
