What does pause mean Miss James?
To stop for a moment, breathe, and just be.
Yesterday, we paused together in Kindergarten.
This morning, I pause alone.
Work calls to me.
Breakfast whispers my name.
Chores needle me.
But still, I pause
I sit, and sip tea.
I ponder, reflect, doodle, write, and color.
I treasure the cool breezes.
I marvel at the sunflower blooming after being decimated by deer.
I admire the beautiful red tomatoes.
I sip my last drop of tea.
I breathe in and out a slow relaxed breath.
I whisper a prayer of gratitude.
I gather my pause and all it’s blessing, and press them deep into my heart.
Renewed, I move forward into the day.
