A lazy life is an empty life, but “early to rise” gets the job done.
Today’s Five Minute Friday prompt word: “Rise.”
I’m an early riser. Yes, I go to bed early too. Even if I stay up late, I still rise early.
Last night I fell asleep on the couch at 7 p.m. and woke at 4 a.m. Weird. I know. But if you’re a mom you are likely nodding your head or smiling because you have done something similar at some point in time. We sleep when we can and when we have to.
I rise early because I like to. It is quiet at my house, and I can get a whole heck of a lot done before dawn. Today, I’ve already checked Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, and bought $70 worth of books on Amazon for our boys’ birthdays (both June bugs), and a book for myself to read this summer. Cashing in on a American Express offer for $20 back on an Amazon purchase. Yes, please!
If you want some ideas for summer reading please look at my post from yesterday: Sweet Summer Reading.
There are two fellow bloggers who would love for you to read their books! My friends Sarah and Crystal are great writers!
Now, please tell me, what do you do when you rise early? Write me a comment pretty please! I love comments, and I don’t get many.
I have already finished a cup of coconut vanilla tea with honey, and I will soon fold some laundry and meet a mom friend for a four mile run/walk/talk time. Cheers to the weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
You are the One who helps us rise.
Forgive me when I do not rise to do the things you ask.
We can easily become lazy or self centered. Help me to pray, seek your guidance, and experience your love through moments of EVERY part of today.
Help me to have a “fun Friday” (as we call them here at our house)! Love you Lord.
