Tumbling out of bed in the morning, it is left rumpled and mussed.
The duvet rests untidily on a chair.
Making the bed is not my first priority. No, I head to the kitchen for that first cup of coffee and then settle in a comfortable chair to read a favorite poet (Billy Collins) or have a few quiet moments before starting the day.
When I return to the bedroom to get dressed, that messy bed screams to be tidied and I spend the few minutes it takes to put it back together.
All done, the room takes on an aura of calmness. I like knowing that tonight when I return to the bed the sheets will be pulled tight and the blanket smoothed. Those are simple things that give me inner peace.
May I tell you the hubby would be just as happy if the bed were not made and all the pillows did not have to be removed night after night!
How about you, where does bed making rate on your list?
