MORNING HAS BROKEN...

I am a very early riser, so I'll start off with the moon saying good-bye. Last night, I went to bed with worries floating in my head. My husband drives an hour and a half to and from work everyday...rising gas prices are threatening my one true "calm". Sooner, more so than later, we will probably have to move back closer to his work( I am thankful for what we do have)... and then I laid in bed thinking of some of the other blogs I've read just before bed. Some mention their worries...disabled children, role reversals with elderly parents, depression, discrimination and even animal abuse. Needless to say, I needed my "calm" this morning. Even after an evening of horrible thunderstorms...morning still survived..mustering up all her energy... and I thought how nature survives...no matter what. I tried to capture the mist caught in the sunbeam over the waterfall, the hummingbird anxious to start a new day, and the fact that the most delicate flowers held their own through the night and still hold themselves up proud. And so to those few who read this post, I hope you find your "calm" on the days you need it most. My thoughts are with you...we all have to remember there is promise in the morning...and a new day begins....

Beautiful photos! You have a real talent for this.
I hope you find the perfect solution with everyone getting what they want / need.
I dont know why but that photo of your waterfall made me think of that Cat Stevens song "Morning has broken". Very soothing, very peaceful.

Calm can be so hard to come by, but the garden, wherever it be, always provides, I find.

Condolences about the possible move approaching. I've done so six times in the last year and have another one not far ahead of me. Some of the garden always comes along...

I wish you peace of mind and a clear-head for planning. Whatever happens, everything will work out the way it is meant to!

Peace.

And I just love that we can see the same moon from our different gardens. The world's not so very big after all, is it?

My heart goes out to you over the prospect of having to move from such a lovely home. If that's what happens I hope you'll find another you'll come to love as much.

The photograph of your pond at daybreak is magical.

Rats...just saw that you don't have comments turned on so I can't use my own URL.

I'm with you in the early morning light. Many life lessons are to be learned there in the peace it affords.

I hope everything turns out right in the end....if you do move I hope you find another Wishnik Woods as lovely as this one. Early morning images have been beautifully captured in the photos. The moon saying goodbye.....amazing!

I hope you don't have to move back to the city. That would be so hard. I have been hoping gas prices go down soon too. Its a strain on everyone. My son has a Yaris and it gets 40 miles to the gallon. Its really a small car but inside is very roomy. He loves it. Of course he loves the gas mileage!!!
