Alarm clock is ringing…Seriously? I just went to bed. At least it feels like it. So does that mean I slept like a rock and that I am ready to take on the day or does that mean I’m going to be exhausted come 3:00?
I find I’m talking to myself as the alarm clock continues to ring. I hit the snooze button. Justifying why 5 more minutes will serve me, and everyone I talk to today…. very well…. as a matter of fact. Pulling the pillow closer, rolling into a most relaxing position and falling, falling, falling back to sleep for what feels like 30 seconds before the alarm clock rings again.
Okay – one more time. Hit the snooze. I already have my clothes picked out and my lunch made. I can do this. I tell myself as I nod off to sleep again thinking, I must change the time between snoozes from 4 minutes to ten. I smile and nod back to sleep.
I fall deep. Deep into sleep and…… I OverSleep!? WHAT?! A 5 minute snooze turned into a 30 minute lapse of time.
Like that. Have you ever done that!? Oh My Gosh, now I’m running around the house like a crazy person. No time for my morning relax-time, read my devotional while I sip-my-coffee-time. I’m putting my pants on while I pour my to-go mug full of coffee. In between putting my lunch in my lunch bag, I run through my head all the things-to-do-in-the-morning to be sure I don’t forget anything!
I head out the door lickity-split.
Was it worth it? Was sleeping in for two snooze buttons worth this fast forward getterdun morning?
I decide ‘NO’. It’s not but it IS worth getting out of bed on the first alarm. I love my relaxing mornings, getting ready while sipping my coffee and starting my day with a calm spirit.
Make it great!
Your God girl
