30 Days Grateful: Day 11 - Oh, But I know Better!

As I lay my head to rest and my soul to sleep, I ponder upon what I am grateful for today.  I set my mind on rewind and play the days event over in my head.  It wasn't a perfect day today.  Today there was anger and quarrel in the air.  The energy was noisy and negative.  I've learned to step aside and let those involved resolve it on their own.  I stand on the sidelines making myself available if I am needed.  Sometimes I am.  Sometimes I'm not.  Today was one of those day.

It's always good to have a place to go to be alone and re-energize.  I always find peace when I step outside the front balcony.  I stare into the clear blue sky and talk to God.  I watch the birds soar up, up high in the sky.  My mind and soul relaxes at the sound of the rustling leaves dancing with the wind.  Lately, this front balcony has been a haven of sorts, a friendly platform of my own where I find inner peace.  At times I even go there early in the morning and wait for the sunrise as I sip on some tea.  It is calming and amazing!

As I lay my head to rest and my soul to sleep, I realize, that today, I am grateful for the front balcony.  A balcony that others just see as a way into the front door.  Oh, but I know better!

Do you have a haven of sorts to call your own? 
Can't wait to hear about it!
