In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Daily Ritual.”

There is something about the predawn hours that gently awakens me each morning.  A presence in those silent hours beckons me to my bedroom window as if to witness the beauty of nature rising just before the sun to celebrate another day.  So I to celebrate each new day with a ritual of celebration and presence.

To help me stay in the moment, my first thought of the morning is, “Creator, What are we going to do today?”  This keeps me in wonder and not worry about my emerging day.   Then I sift through my seashell filled with tiny icon’s.  Each one, from items of nature to Mexican Milagros, has a special meaning.  Ladybug & sacred geometry, humming bird & joy, leapfrogs mean standing on someone’s shoulder to see beyond illusion etc. etc..  This morning it is the Bumble Bee, my icon of ‘everything is possible!”.     I set this sweet symbol of abundance in view for the rest of my day to remind me that I am guided by a wonderful presence that greets me each morning.
