Joy In The Morning

I found joy this morning when that guy that I like so much grabbed the empty coffee canister and instead of saying 'where's the coffee?' instead said, 'let's go out to breakfast.'

I. married. well.


I've said it a million times before and I'll say it a million more...I love going out to breakfast.  I love breakfast, period.  Eggs.  Bacon.  Sweet.  Salty.  Doesn't matter to me...I just like it when someone else is cooking it.

And cleaning up from it.

So off we went to our favorite little haunt...The Old Vine Cafe.  The food is organic-y and really, really yummy.  This morning I ordered two sides...and yes, the picture below is of my side orders.  Can you even imagine the size of the full order?

Introducing: a fried green tomato topped with pesto and a homemade biscuit smothered in pancetta gravy.

Seriously...I could eat here day after day.  And I kinda sorta will be...I only ate half, so the rest is for tomorrow.


Once home, after noticing that 2/3 of my houseful of boys were still soundly sleeping, I decided to work for a few hours.  I am choosing to find joy in my job this year after failing miserably at that task last year.

This year two things are making me happy.  #1: a new work cell that I can turn OFF when I am not working and #2: a fancy printer/scanner that can do stacks, rather than having to scan 40 pages one by one by one.

Seriously?  It's the little things.

I've realized that lately...lately I've been choosing to worry and complain and basically see the negative.  Not good...not good at all.  I've also realized that in these lovely summer months, the months without us having to be here or there or anywhere at all, I have NOT ONCE gotten up early and spent a little quiet time with God.

Not once.

How sad is that?  No wonder I feel a little lost.  Have I prayed?  Oh yeah...but I haven't spent anytime at all reading my bible.


Tomorrow morning my alarm is already set.  Set for early o'clock in the morning, before I meet a girlfriend for a 7:00am hike.  I'm choosing to make time for my God.  He's been waiting for me.
