Drinking coffee on the porch with my wife is by far the most relaxing half hour of my week. We watch the rain. We listen to Dustin O'Halloran on the piano. We talk and laugh about our days. We hold hands. We stare at our street and dream a bit. Its a purposeful time of loving.
And thats just the thing, we're purposely telling the world to wait. Wait until we step back into its chaos and calm. We don't have to be responsible or reachable or alert. We need to listen to some rain, drink strong coffee, and be still.
So today, #1 on my top five goes to these 30 minutes.
