i am not a morning person.
not one bit.
it doesn’t matter if i have gotten
3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9
hours of sleep,
if i get out of bed before 7:14
(just ask B)
i’m a

it’s awful.
every night i vow to have a better attitude
or promise to not plead with B 
the moment i hear little people stirring 
to let me sleep a little while longer 
and every morning 
(nearly every morning) 
i fail.
it’s because i suck and i am sinful 
but it doesn’t meant that it always must be this way.
i must change and grow and sacrifice.

and when i do,
the Lord surely blesses me.
like with moments like this
(which i captured only by rising early).

those unexpected moments 
are the ones that leave me breathless 
and make my heart go all pitter-patter.
