Why would ANYONE get up this EARLY?!!
Now that I got ya with this adorable pic, look at Ainsley’s eyes. Every morning I get those eyes smiling at me with nothing but laughter. Of course I set the tone with the words“What’s going on in here? and why wasn’t I invited?”!
The morning to me is living the hope of a new day. No distractions, just prep time to make the new day amazing. I try to put away all the trial, tribulation, and pettiness from the day before. Because I am sure we all get exhausted by the end of the day, all of us.
I think that is what is so great about the new day, we can try harder to make it better than the one before. Not to mention I get to let my best girl Emily sleep in, because she works so hard putting Ainsley down. Ainsley fights sleep like her daddy fights his weight! And I have to be grateful for Emily’s patience and love every morning.
Then I get to meet up with Chefs Justin and Karen at 6am. The best part about coming into “work” is that I know that they see ALL our children’s eyes in Ainsley’s baby blues. And that is what makes all the difference, knowing my team cares so much for our city.
Good Morning Grand Rapids!
I hope you make it a great day!
