Do you hear that?

Listen carefully.  What do you hear?  Hmmm, I hear nothing.  Yes, all is nice and quiet.  There is no hum from the AC.  There is no whirl from the fan.  Silence.

But wait.  Listen again.  There.  Do you hear that?  The gentle hum of the cat purring.  Yes.  And that?  It’s the little voice of the other cat, slowly waking and getting ready to greet the day.  And now I can hear a car pass by.

Slowly, slowly.  The world is coming to life.  It’s 5:37am – welcome new day!  What do you hold in store for me?

I am ready to embrace this day.  Good morning world!
