7 – Early to bed, Early to rise…

She rises when it is still night;


I am an early riser. Always have been, always will be. When my grandkids are visiting they know that I’ll get up with them no matter how early it is. I think it’s a waste of time laying in bed waiting to other people to wake up. Why should I lose precious time because I have lazy relatives.

In my older age, waking up in the middle of the night happens a bit more frequently. I embrace those times. I will only lay in bed for 10 minutes waiting to go to sleep. Then I get up, make a hot beverage, sit at my computer and write. I refuse to do work in the middle of the night, but I will be creative. It’s wonderful! It’s amazing! Sometimes I’m still there when the sun comes up and I go about my day with more energy than if I had 10 hour sleep. Other times my eyes begin to get heavy, I turn off the light, crawl back into bed and have the most wonderful sleep possible.

Ever been to the grocery store just before the sun comes up? It’s the best time to be there. The floor is full of employees drinking coffee, fixing the produce, talking to each other, and being very friendly. There are no unhappy children, no hurried shoppers that need dodging. The checkout person is delighted to see you, sincerely interested in the day ahead of you, and sends you off with a fresh smile.

While it is still night has secret powers. It’s an energy source that begs to be found and yet so often ignored. It is when the day is still fresh and nothing is impossible.
