My little human alarm clock went off at 5:40am this morning. The thoughts start rushing in, “Can’t you sleep in just once little girl?” ”I crawled into bed a little before midnight last night.” ”You woke me up screaming ‘No!’ and grabbing your mouth because of your teeth not once but twice.” ”Ugh! I’m tired.”
But you know what? Yes, I am tired. There is a good reason for it.
I’m tired because I played with V yesterday and because I hooped so that I could have fun and exercise. I’m tired because I did my hundreds. I’m tired because I did laundry, made meals for friends, and had time to stay up with my DH and friend to watch TED talks and eat chocolate and popcorn in peace and quiet.
I’m grateful for all of it – all the little moments that I get to live and love. Even the tired ones.
