I have never been a morning person. 5:00 AM has never been a time when anything other than sleeping sounded like a good idea. But this morning at 5:00 AM I was happy to get up to feed my little girl.
When I woke up to her little cries and looked at the clock, I realized that she had been sleeping for 7.5 hours. A new record! I got her up and fed her in the quiet of the morning, with some of my favorite worship music playing. Kaitlyn just stared at me while she ate. After she ate we snuggled and rocked for awhile and listened to the music. And then we both went back to sleep for a little while before it was time to get ready for church.
After the scramble to get all three of us ready for church, I enjoyed going to Sunday School to be encouraged and enjoy some time to talk with friends.
When we came home from church, we all three took a nap. Exactly how Sunday afternoons should be!
Tomorrow morning I may not be happy to get up at 5:00 AM, or whenever my little sweetie decides I should get up. But today was a great morning. Even at 5:00 AM.
