Ever since I can remember –
the first bird chirping –
My bedroom as I got older after my older brother
left for college –
Was right in the front of the house –
Facing East and those first rays of the Sun.
GOOD MORNING EVERYONE !
I have always awoken either before those first rays
or shortly after!
I am up early each and every day –
first cup of coffee
BEFORE the morning paper hits the pavement!
And it is that way even if I force myself
To stay up and watch the BALL DROP for NEW YEARS!
My wife and I just had this conversation
About how over the years – we use to party –
Now it is CAN WE STAY AWAKE !
And – I am good with 7 to 71/2 hours of sleep –
BUT – it has to be when I am tired ( 8 to 8:30 PM. )
If I go to bed then – I SLEEP – solid –
seems in my later years –
I always wake up once to go to the bathroom! LOL
But – if I stay up –
I wake up the same time each day –
and then I feel terrible the rest of the day!
It’s like I have a internal clock
( I do not use a alarm clock)
If you tell me you want up at a certain time
I WILL WAKE YOU UP with NO alarm clock!
I do not know how that works – but it does for me!
My wife is opposite ( we do attract each other)
She likes to stay up later – somewhere around 10 to 11:30 PM.
She will wake up from 5 to 6 am. and read her phone –
I think it is her phone –
She is the lead in our book club from church
and she reads the books on line –
BUT – after a half hour or so – SOUND ASLEEP AGAIN! LOL
7:30 to 8:00 AM. she is up and ready to go-
Me – I have done all my face book – email – and my writing
read the entire paper front to back
and had two cups of coffee & ready for shower!
Life has it’s own schedule for everyone
mine happens to be EARLY
And I can remember those mornings back to my childhood
That bedroom not only faced East – but had huge maple trees
with lots of birds – all chirping with the first rays of Sunshine.
There was the main highway as we lived on the main street of a small town
In the foothills of the Allegheny Mountains
I could hear the trucks going by –
and behind the house the railway tracks
The ” Click – Click ” as the wheels of the train as it passes
Lulled me to sleep each night!
Yes – I am up at the crack of dawn –
That is just who I am –
I like my morning solitude
My quiet time – my time to write – think and read.
Thank you for reading Papa’s World
Where friends meet the family!
Your day is just starting – mine is hours old –
So Sunday mornings – I get dressed and head to church –
8:15 AM. service
By that time – my day is well on it’s way –
AND I DON’T MIND AT ALL!
