Redeeming the Time Part 2

Read Part 1 first!

As I watched my husband day after day, getting up, getting ready, having time with God, I decided to do just one thing.

I would get up with him. I told myself I didn’t have to do anything other than sit next to him at the table.

I did not make a grand announcement that I was going to now be a morning person and make breakfast for him everyday. I didn’t promise anything. I didn’t even say anything. I just got up with him.

While he was happy that my sad, sleepy self was technically next to him at the breakfast table, I was not happy. Seriously. I was tired and groggy and might have fallen asleep with my head on the table. Maybe. Ok yes I did. A couple times. Sad.

After a few days of this, I thought about giving up. Clearly my husband did not mind that I slept longer. He knew that homeschooling 4 kids and keeping house is a big job that requires a less zombie-like person. I could easily sleep continue sleeping in.

Instead, I made a list of 3 things I wanted to accomplish with my new found time in the morning.

  1. Make our bed (so I wasn’t tempted to crawl back in)
  2. Start one load of laundry (A jumpstart on the day? What a novel idea!)
  3. Read the Bible

Ok, that’s an easy-ish list. I can do that. So I did.

Tomorrow I’ll tell you what we’re doing and how it’s changed our lives.
