The Mist, Little Bird, Sunrise, and Answered Prayers
I just woke up about a half hour ago. The house was still quiet as everyone was still sleeping. I made my way to the kitchen shivering a bit as my feet hit the cold stone floor in my kitchen. I found my way with eyes half closed to the coffee maker to poor my morning cup of coffee. Then I heard it.... this bird... she was right outside my window somewhere but I couldn't see her. Singing the most amazing song loud and clear. I just heard the one bird singing as if she was singing a good morning song right to me. While looking out the kitchen window I noticed the sun starting to peek out from behind the trees. I sat there with my morning cup of coffee listening to the song of this one little bird and watching the most amazing sunrise give way to a field covered in the most amazing mist.
Spring is coming :) I know in a month I will hear the chorus of the birds again in the morning. It's a sound I have most definitely miss. We don't get mist a lot where I live. I know it's going to be a warm day today and hence the reason the field is likely so beautiful this morning. But I am thankful for the serene experience I was given this morning. I have been put in a situation where I need to say no to something. Today is the day. It sounds easy enough right? Not really, not for someone like me. That has been a huge obstacle for me to overcome is going with what I want and not what everyone wants from me. As an empath I hate conflict. I mean I really really hate conflict. It makes me very uneasy, and puts this feeling in the pit of my stomach, so whenever possible I try to avoid it. But I have a situation that I am incredibly uncomfortable with and I am choosing not to partake. So today I will stand my ground and say no, and pray it doesn't come back to bite me.
I lit a white candle last night and asked for assistance in being strong today, and to help have those involved understand where I'm coming from. This morning I awoke to the amazing gift of the song of that little bird. Who sang so loud and so proud. Even though it was still dark outside her voice lifted through that darkness and brought with it the sun and an amazingly glorious day. I never did see where she was, but I know she was there. I am thankful for the signs and the strength and knowing I am never alone.
Love and Blessings,
