(August 8) "I Thought I Had More Time"

I thought I had more time!


Like most evenings, I went to bed entirely too late last night. It seems I often promise myself in the morning that I will get to sleep earlier that coming night, but it rarely happens.


Early this morning a massive clap of thunder woke me up. I was a bit groggy and a lot tired. I did what we all do when we wake up in the middle of the night...I nervously turned my eyes toward the clock to see how what time it is. Some days I am eager to get up and start the day. Other mornings, like today, when I went to sleep a bit late, I hope the clock reveals I have more time to sleep.


3:31!!!!!!!!! I was excited. I still had a couple of hours to go
