Over the Horizon

One thing I have missed while living in between homes is a window in my bedroom.  I used to wake up naturally sometime between 5:00-5:30.  But in utter darkness, my internal alarm clock is thoroughly confused.  My husband sets the alarm on his phone for 5:30 and when it goes off, I must groggily force myself out of bed. As I do, I’m usually muttering something about looking forward to having a window again.

This struggle to get out of bed is highly unusual behavior for me.  But, apparently, light (not just the thought of coffee) is crucial for this early bird to be an enthusiastic early bird.  Interestingly enough, even my name Eileen means light.

This morning I wait hopefully for the light that is to come.  It’s just over the horizon.

      Well Bill…since you’re not using your window…mind if I borrow it? 😉 I promise to give it back.

    The sun came up just fine here on the west coast. Don’t worry. I’ll let you know if things change. Until you wake up to the sunshine, may the Son shine on you!

    Eileen, I didn’t realize I liked mornings until I moved to Florida. There’s so much sun here and it has impacted me for the better. Praying you get your window soon!

      Amazing how often we don’t truly appreciate something until our situations changes. Thanks, Tammy!

    We just made a venue change as well. I traded a view of the Parana river as a base for Posadas, Argentina for a plumbing warehouse full of toilets. At least they’re new. It puts us in a better environment for our work so it’s good. And, the sun just glistens on that new porcelain.

      Glad you are adjusting to your new location too, Ken. I’m really trying to imagine your new crib…a toilet warehouse. At least there isn’t line in your house to use the bathroom 😉 When the morning sun, once again, glistens off my porcelain…it will be a day of celebration indeed!
