Mornings are hard.
Especially when I like to stay up in the wee hours of the evening, so I can enjoy some alone time.
Mornings, my bed is just too well-formed, and warm for my body, and my eyes are too heavy to open. My iPhone alarm that wakes me is always garishly loud, even though I have the volume quite low. When I need to use the porcelain throne, I can nearly convince myself to wait a smidge longer, just to linger in bed.
Once I’m finally up and moving, the first place I visit is the guest bedroom.
That’s where my daughters have decided to sleep. They’ve abandoned their separate rooms, and instead snuggle together. We’ve had this happen multiple times in their young lives. I love that they not only love each other, they like each other, most of the time.
All the torture of getting up in the morning is erased when I snuggle between my girls to ease them out of the comforting, blissful throes of dreamland, and into the stark, bright light of reality.
The truth is, I love these quiet moments. I love that each day we can begin again. I’ve loved Anne from Anne of Green Gables since I was a child, and quotes from L.M. Montgomery’s lovely novels have always resonated in my head, nearly all my life.
Below is my little YouTube video for you on this lovely Wednesday.
