What are your first thoughts in the AM? Like me, I wake up thinking about what I need to do ASAP and what I need to accomplish that day. This morning, nothing was different but I took a special notice to my 2 year old. He's so transparent and I realized his first thoughts are his family. When he wakes up in the morning - immediately he starts talking on his "phone" (His hand up to his ear). I am not too sure what he's talking about - but I recognize that we - "Mommy", "Daddy" and his little sister "Nay Nay" are all involved in his "Happy Day!" plans. I am sure all kids do this but I couldn't help but think that maybe I should do this too - in adult form, that is.
I always have heard, put God first in everything but I some how manage to jump out of bed, get whisked away in my day and sadly forget until night time. I am thinking if you pray for someone first thing in the AM - that day, may just be a little better. I don't know. For me, I am taking this as a gentle reminder to just take a few minutes and think about and pray for those so close to my heart.
Anyways . . .
Kids crack me up and I find their perspective on life amazing. There is simple wisdom that many adults can learn from. This was on Facebook last week and I just loved it! I hope you do too.
