Not a creature was stirring…

This morning in bed before the 7:00 am alarm went off I was awake but not stirring. “Kimmy?” SW said to me, “your breathing sounds really good.”  “Uh-huh,” I replied to end the conversation.

He was right.  My breathing was fine.  I was laying completely horizontal, on my right side, a position that usually generates an array of crackles and pops with each inhale and exhale.

I began to breathe deeper and deeper.  I felt the oxygen filling my lungs entirely and sending energy to the tips of my fingers and toes.  The only sound I heard was air moving. No crackles, no wheezing, no urge to clear my throat.

It did not last long.  But for a few minutes I was successfully living in the moment.  That amazing, perfect moment.
