i have been waking up at 6 a.m. in hopes that my days would be off to a smoother start. it hasn't really been hard to wake up that early, i quite enjoy it. my kids are still in bed, sometimes for 10 min, sometimes an hour, but it is nice to have that time alone to prepare for the day. whether i read my scriptures and have a quiet prayer, take a shower, work out to a dvd, or just lay in bed, i love that time.
i love the orange glow of the morning.
i love to hear the doves rhythmic cooing sounds out my window.
i love to hear callie chattering or singing to herself when she wakes up.
i love to be the one to great my children when they wake up, sometimes with a warm breakfast.
on this morning, i wandered out into the backyard in my mu mu. i enjoyed the cooler air, the sun, the grass on my feet, my bowl of blueberries.
