Tap, Tap, Tap…Get Up, Get up!

Ugh! Woke up at 3am with a queasy tummy. I stayed up until 4:30, then tried to go back to sleep. My cat didn’t want me to go back to sleep. Now it is 9am, I’m wide awake and my cat is sound asleep. I should go tap on him repeatedly and say “get up, get up!” because that’s how I spent an hour and a half before giving up at 6am. But retaliation feels like too much trouble since he’s sleeping on the floor. If I get down, I might just fall asleep beside him!

Life is full of ups and downs. This morning is one of my downs, but I’m going to make the best of the day. Right now I’m thankful my hanging baskets of flowers are getting their watering from God. I want to always look for something positive in every single day, even though sometimes I need to look a little harder.

Lifting my cup of tea with a smile and a cheerful good morning!

I'm a mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and best of all a child of God. The beautiful colors in God's world lift my spirits and give me inspiration. Every morning is a new beginning, and a blessed gift from God! I enjoy a cup of tea each morning and give thanks to my Savior for life eternal.
