Dear Daughters,

What started out as an everyday chore—putting on a pot of water each morning to make hot tea—has become a peaceful moment in my daily routine.

All is usually quiet in the house when I shuffle into the kitchen in my comfy house slippers and turn on the stove burner. And there isn’t a boss hovering nearby as would happen in a workplace setting. It’s just me and a cold metal pot.

I enjoy hearing the sssssshhhhh of water as it comes out of the faucet. And I like the sound the water makes when it is heating up. And of course I love the end results—hot water for tea!

My day just does not seem to go right unless I engage in this little habit.

What about you? What is the most peaceful moment in your daily routine?
