Waking up in the morning before anyone else is like finding $20 in the pocket of an old jacket–an unexpected gift, a recovery of something you had, but didn’t know it.

The trouble is deciding what to do with that time.  Read, jump online, laze in bed, exercise, write, scramble with friends? A bit of each? 

Like all of life, you can never be sure how long that sweet spot is going to last.  How long do you have before your daughter runs and jumps in bed with you and asks to snuggle? 

Those days won’t last long either.  

Savor the moments that we are given on this earth.  Every one.
