waiting through the sleeping


Jenny and I slept in this morning.

It was 5:45 when she came into our bedroom after sleeping on the couch (by accident….we’re so tired).

Usually, I’m up and out by 5:00….so….5:45 is “sleeping in”.

Anyway….we visited for a while….like two grownups get a chance to visit …when we heard our little girl say….from her little bed at the other end of the dark room….”OH!! IT’S MORNING ALREADY!!”

She was so pleased….so excited.

It was pretty funny.

What would that be like to know that the day ahead is something to be excited about?

I love my life….but….I don’t know that I greet every morning like that.

Maybe when I’m not going to be running mail that day?

It’s hard to say.

But….if you found yourself “waiting through the sleeping”…until you could engage again with the world….until you could greet the mystery and magic of the new day’s potential…if you could do all that with all the excitement and expectation that it really deserves…..well…wouldn’t that be something?

It’s raining hard here.

What an amazing thing all this life is.

And….it’s morning already.

That’s a good thing.
