The greatest thing happened on Sunday.
Okay, not the greatest, but it was good.
Our power was out from around 1:00 AM until about 11:00 AM.
It was so quiet and peaceful.
No noisy hum of the computer or the fridge.
The girls found interesting things to do...
Drawing, writing, playing board games....
I was able to do some cooking.
We have a gas stove and I just lit the burners with a match.
We had a fantastic morning and were slightly bummed when the power returned.
Strange to say, but I felt so alive and so present after that morning!
I spend way too much time on the computer.
I really want to change that.
I'm grateful for the gift of electricity,
But I'm also grateful for the gift of a morning without it.
