Wisdom from a Tea Bag

When you wake up at 4:30am for the third time in the night and you have two sisters taking up your bed, you get up and make some tea that you remember you have and you watch I'll Be Home For Christmas because you like that movie and it's on netflix. There is something about being up in the early hours of the day, drinking tea and watching a Christmas movie in April. It's in these kinds of moments that you do trust. You trust that everything is meant to be good and life is really simple. And there is peace.

  3. it's funny that you found peace in that moment, because for me, that moment would be anything but peaceful - knowing i'd have to wake up and go to work soon on not enough rest. so next time that happens, i'm going to try to find the peace that you found, because really it must be there somewhere.

  4. I wish I liked tea. It always sounds so cozy and wonderful and then I'm like, "This need more cream and chocolate." =)

  5. I've never been one of those people that can get out of bed in the middle of the night. I love the idea of it, but my body refuses. Even if I want a wee really badly, I more often than not stay in bed drifting in and out of sleep until my alarm goes off!!

  7. I completely understand the feeling of an early rise.
    The calm you feel from waking up and everything seems alright. Every choice you make, makes sense...even if you're watching a Christmas movie and you should be going back to sleep.
