My Morning

The question has been asked, “What does your morning look like?”

I could say I am usually out on my yacht every morning with feet up, taking in the morning sun with my favorite caramel McCafe` in hand. That’s would I could say. But I’m not.

I could say I am usually sleeping-in with the lull of my favorite music and the scent of my favorite candle (warm vanilla bean). That’s what I could say. But I’m not.

I could say my chauffeur pulls up in front of my house at exactly 9:00 a.m. every morning to take me to my various shopping spots. That’s what I could say. But I’m not.

What I will say is that I wake up every morning hitting the snooze button at exactly 6:15 and rise-and-shine shortly after. My mirrored vanity is directly across from my side of the bed so once I rise, I instantly see my dis-configured head of hair in the reflection. I shuffle my feet slowly across the room and somehow manage to wake up enough to make myself look presentable for the day ahead. With usually only fifteen minutes to spare before my work day begins, I open the window blinds to see what the morning has to say. It usually says, ” Wake-Up!”

I open the office window blind and see tiny hand and fingerprints from the morning before. My American flag waves ever so slightly in the morning breeze. My computer screen-saver reflects my grandson looking back at me with his beautiful blue eyes and amazing smile. I can almost hear his laughter. I always smile! 🙂

My morning has begun. I soon see mothers carrying their children to my front door. I open the door and say “Good Morning…”

They know they are welcomed.  They know they are safe. They know they are loved. They are at Miss Laura’s.

What do your mornings look like? Inquiring minds want to know.

  3. Thank you for recently visiting and following my blog site. I see that you are a grandmother, too. 🙂 I am also. I can relate to the smiles and laughter of those little faces that always make our mornings and days brighter. Blessings.

    • Thank you for your comments. YES..and I’m about to become a Nonnie again…any day now. I’m so excited. Aren’t grandchildren just the greatest blessing ever? 🙂 🙂

    Aww .. This brought a smile to my face! Grandparents are such a blessing! 🙂

  5. I am NOT a morning person lol. My morning consists of me hitting the snooze button at least twice and finally rolling out of bed to rush to either work or class on an empty stomach (I always hit snooze too many times and end up having to rush out with no breakfast lol)

  7. Currently, I am my own boss and mornings are ugly (at least until the coffee pot is drained). My alarm goes off promptly at 6:52 AM. I’m not sure why I set it at all. Somewhere between 8:00 and 8:30 (ish) I remind myself through a series of grunts and groans that the jungle of a yard will not come down on its own…from 10-5 I work like an animal (praising my savior all the day long)…but, I am of sound body and sound mind, and He gives me the strength I need each morning!

    • I know the feeling of the grunts and groans. LOL The evenings and weekends go by so fast. Some dasy just seem to blend into another but it’s all good. Right? So true of what the Lord provides. Thanks for the reminder. 🙂

  8. For me, THIS morning looked like me shuffling around the house feeling discombobulated because I’m trying to readjust my body to getting up on school time. Then it looked like jaw-dropping surprise and squealing excitement when my daughter came in the house holding an adorable brown-striped baby chick. They are hatching several days earlier than expected and are so sweet! I’d better go back outside and check on them… 🙂

      • Update: Strangest hatch ever for us! We bought the fertilized eggs because we currently have no rooster and felt sorry for the four hens who have been trying to hatch infertile and wooden eggs all summer. I think the hen was so excited to finally have babies she decided early that she was done setting. She took her three chicks onto the dirt and left five eggs in the nest box — one of which was cracking and peeping!

        Luckily, we had a couple of (somewhat inconsistent) setters on hand to take over where the first hen left off. We now have a ridiculously tiny cochin/silkie bantam hen sitting on the remaining five eggs. She can barely cover them all! One has hatched, and another is on the way. Strangely, she seems to be ignoring all the excitement under her, so I’m not sure if the young hen is truly ready for motherhood. Only time will tell. I’m paranoid because we had a hen who…well, for lack of a better word, went ,em>insane from not being allowed to hatch eggs and from the rooster relentlessly picking on her. When we finally let her incubate a batch of eggs, she killed each one as it hatched!

          • The first hen was having a blast running around the chicken pen with her three babies, and we ended up (sort of accidentally) giving her an extra one back that the second hen hatched. I think that’s good because the tiny hen didn’t need five chicks who are all going to grow up to be much larger than their momma. 🙂

            The last egg is in the process of hatching under the small hen — success! We keep a wire barrier over her nest box because the older hens try to run her out. We don’t want any babies killed. After the last chick hatches, we’ll move her to a private suite for a week or two. 😉

  9. I did not know you had opened your on day care I know they are safe at Miss Laura. Did Danny tell you we are now in Christisnburg

    • Hey Sherry! How’s it going? I’ve been providing childcare for a little over 2 years now and love it! Danny did tell me and we need to plan to get together sometime! Glad you’re here!😃

    • Thanks so much! I am very blessed to love my work. Some people cannot say that but I’m one of those who can. And my days are far from mundane. They keep me on my toes!😃 LOL
