One Bite of the Morning…

“O Lord, let my soul rise up to meet you at the say rises to meet the sun
.Common Prayer: A Liturgy For Ordinary Radicals

In the past I have not been a morning person… not that I claim to be now… but I started reading Tsh Oxenreider’s book “One Bite at a Time: 52 Projects for Making Life Simpler“… and I took my first bite…

While cozy in my bed last night… before reading the evening prayer from “Common Prayer: A Liturgy For Ordinary Radicals“… I created my morning routine list…

  • Read morning liturgy
  • Drink a large glass of water
  • Shower
  • Get dressed
  • Make my bed
And I actually did it this morning… I set my alarm for 7am… and I followed the list… 
I will not lie… I really did consider snuggling down under the warm covers and sleeping until my children got up… but I didn’t…
See here I am with my hair wet from the shower and a real (not pajama) shirt on:

And my bed made:

And for once the morning felt really good… I feel like I have accomplished something today… I feel as though I took the time so take care of myself… to prepare to love others…  
And I will celebrate that.
