oh what a beautiful mornin'!

I got up early this morning. I opened up my windows and I let the cool breeze flow through my little house.  It's amazing what a cool morning breeze can do to wake you up and make you feel rejuvenated.

I normally claim to be a night owl, but for some reason, a bright early morning is my favorite time of day.  The sun is just rising, the breeze is fresh and the world is somewhat quiet.  I find that whenever I wake early I find myself more appreciative and aware of the love our Father in Heaven has for us.  What a wonderful and beautiful world he has created for us to enjoy and take care of!  I find that I have more love for my family and I want to sacrifice my time for them.  I find that I have more motivation to get going with my day.  Usually on days when I wake up early, I tend to be more busy throughout the day and so at the end of the day I feel a sense of accomplishment.  Maybe it's also because I've added just a couple more hours to my day.  Whatever the case, I love this feeling and perhaps I'll try to make it a part of my everyday.

May God show you his glory in the little things today.

Here is a little playlist that I sometimes listen to if I am down or just need a little push to get going... Enjoy!

mmmm getting up early is my favorite - i too love the quiet and calm feelings it brings. and i'm not sure what it is either, but i swear you are motivated to accomplish so much more in a day when you wake up early.

So true. Waking up to the sunrise is pretty cool. If I was a runner, that's what I do every morning. When the weather's not so gloomy, we should meet somewhere and watch the sunrise and snack on bagel or something. haha That'd be fun.

I totally agree Laura!! I LOVE watching the sunrise and all the beauties that the early morning brings. Now if I only I could remember that when the alarm clock goes off and I hit the snooze button :)

Laura,I just love you. You always seem to say the things that I need to hear. I'm so grateful to have such a great example like you for a friend. :)

I am the EXACT same way. I'm a total night owl but when I can find it in myself to get my booty out of bed early I love it! It's such a great time of day. Plus it's way easier for me to be productive in the mornings.
