Welcome to 2017! The staff in our district started back today; students return tomorrow. I was tempted to skip today's blog post, but after a two week holiday, I need to get back in the habit of writing!
I have started off my year by incorporating page-a-day books into my morning routine. This one was a gift from a friend years ago, and I keep moving it to the top of my to-read pile each year--so 2017 will be the year it gets read!
McColman's book of Celtic myths, traditions, and spirituality speaks to the Irish half of my blood. I'm looking forward to learning a bit more about my heritage each day.
The other book is a gift to myself:
The Petras siblings have a series of quotation books on various topics. I'm using this collection to spur my daily meditation and put myself in a good frame of mind before heading off to work and household chores.
Both of these books have numbered entries, making it easy to stay on track. I'm a bit too blurry-eyed before coffee to tackle anything too deep; these page-a-day formats are the perfect fit to my quiet morning.
It's Monday; did you read before you went to work or school today? What's your preferred morning text?
