They might cry and moan, but it's that time of year again. It's time to get up earlier, and wake those sleeping, grumpy children. It's time to pack lunches and backpacks...and let's not forget homework.
Because if your children have homework you have homework too!
Moms and Dads while preparing your children for school it's important to make time for your soul and mind. It's difficult to nourish others if we don't take care of ourselves. It's very easy to get frazzled while everyone in the household is adjusting to the back to school schedule.
What works best for me is getting up early before anyone else is moving in the house.(5am-5:30am). This is time for me. As soon as my feet hit floor I say thank you. I say a prayer/mediate and give to thanks to a new day. I read positive quotes to feed my mind and soul.
After that I put on a pot of coffee. While that's brewing I take some bread and nuts to feed the birds and squirrels. All kinds of birds appear Robins, Cardinals, the occasional Blue Jay and many sparrows. I love to watch the animals eat while I sip my coffee before the sun appears.
It's a beautiful time of day.
Now I'm ready to start my day. Got to drop my son off and catch the early morning train. May you find your peace.
