A Hot Shower

I usually showered at night but today I was up before the alarm and had a busy day ahead. I wanted to be awake and refreshed. I turned on the water and adjusted the temperature to just below scalding. I watched the steam rise and water droplets appear on the shower curtain. I eased into the hot stream and relaxed as it melted away the grogginess.

There are so many moments spent on things to worry about, stress about, plan for, anticipate, forget to anticipate, and feel bad about forgetting to anticipate, but then there are moments like these; at least for a brief, quiet moment, things settle down, and all is well.
