Sunday Promise

Monarch Chrysalis

Hello and Happy Sunday! Waking up on Sunday mornings have always been a happy place for me. The start to a whole new week and all that lies ahead. Sometimes when I wake up, the week’s agenda waits outside my Sunday Morning like a customer eagerly waiting for a shop to open for business. She peers in the window and taps on the glass. Sorry week! We don’t open till noon! I keep the door locked and pour a cup of coffee.

The picture at the beginning of this post is of our new pet. We are taking name suggestions if you have any! This monarch pupa was a gift we picked up attending the Monarch Watch Open House yesterday. Isn’t it exquisite? In this chrysalis, a quiet transformation is occurring. A silent promise hanging from our window.

In a way my Sunday Mornings are my silent promise, a still moment before the journey starts.

I’m off to pour another cup of coffee.

Have a great week!
