Quiet Mornings

When I was about nine, or ten, I can remember my mom waking up early to go jogging. I remember I was old enough to enjoy sleeping in, and thinking that she must be nuts to want to get up that early. Life has a funny way of only revealing the very best secrets to you at the right times, and now as a mother of two, this early morning secret has been revealed.

I have started getting up early, like five am early, to be able to exercise, and then have some nice quiet time before the girls wake up. It is magical. This morning I realized on my way to the gym, that soon it will be dark on my way to, and from the gym. I didn’t like that thought at first, but then remembered that I will see the sunrise while drinking coffee in the morning! And that too, will add to the magic of this time I get to have before the little pitter patters begin.

I have begun to find a good balance, between my identity as a mom, and my identity as myself. This motherhood thing is feeling really good.
