Filed under: My Thoughts — by my3boysandi @ 6:53 am


This morning its raining

we havent had rain like this in months

the farmers will be pleased

as I type this theres a soft gentle mist hanging about

the traffic lights are still on

and my family are quietly sleeping

its 7am and im the only one awake

this is my time

I can hear the rain singing to me as it hits the ground

although I would never admit to being a morning person I do like this time of the morning

before the noise of the day and children begins

maybe I am a morning person????


I quietly watch as a blue 4wheel drive pulls into a neighbouring driveway

He blocks my view

but hes not there long

I enjoy once again the still view from the window

I enjoy the roses the greenery the peaceful street

being bathed in much needed rain

slowly people head off to start their day

I know all soon my day will start too and the quietness will be shattered

dont get me wrong I love my boys all 3 of them the grown one included

but basically Im a loner

made that way through childhood experiences

I have come to enjoy the company of myself

the peacefulness the quietness with only birds saying good morning

They sit upon the carport next door

I like bird watching

singing to me

talking to each other

fat plump little birds

observing the morning as I am

the light of morning slowly creeps in

getting brighter and brighter

although I know it will be a grey day today

it is after all raining and pouring and still the old man is snoring



  1. Though I love my family, I love quiet moments alone.

    What a wonderful start you had to your day!

  3. Would you believe it has been raining all night and all day today. We are actually hearing flood warnings on the radio!

    I love this weather, and know it is hard to drive when it is raining hard, but to me, it is a true blessing from God. I will rejoice and be glad!

    the time when i am alone in the morning.. well, not really alone but the only one up because people are still snoring. and when it rains, i could hear the raindrops and the wind blowing outside while i enjoyed my reading time. ahhh that’s just a marvelous time to treasure. just like urs.. 🙂

    It’s raining here too, but it’s supposed to turn to snow soon. Don’t know how much we’ll get yet…
