I love the wee small hours of the morning! Literally! Early morning is when I feel most like my "old" self. I'm at my best! Most of the time everything works fairly well-eyes, hands, feet, voice, mouth, esophagus...yeah, I think about my esophagus everyday!
I also love the song-it's from the 50's-recorded by Frank Sinatra (and countless others). It's on my Sleepless in Seattle soundtrack performed by Carly Simon. Go ahead...download it...it's Carly Simon for goodness sake!
I wake up early each morning so I have time to count out and take necessary medications. I wake up early so I have time to prepare breakfast, lunch, and snacks for the day (the esophagus remember). I wake up early so I can do one or two things to take care of my family. I wake up early-while the whole wide world is fast asleep-and think...
I think about the girl I used to be and I miss her...but then I breathe and keep thinking.
I think about the day before me and I dream BIG...then I smile and make a realistic plan.
I think about family and friends and pray for loved ones near and far while I'm eating s-l-o-w-l-y.
I think about the tasks I left undone the night before and notice that many are lovingly and imperfectly completed.
I think about what I can do...and then I do it!
I love the wee small hours of the morning!
