Although each of our families are different, we all get into habits of living. Those habits often change with the times and with needs as they arise.
I am an early riser, but it takes me a while in the morning to want to engage with others. When our kids were growing up, my husband would be on his way to work when it was time for the rest of us to get up. After opening doors, turning on lights, and, in general, being the alarm clock, I spent quiet time in the kitchen preparing breakfast while the kids got up. The wonderful part of that is that we usually had a really good breakfast. Years later, our “early to rise” grandchildren learned to sit on the couch with Grandpa and read books until breakfast was cooked and everyone was up and ready to eat. How do you say “good morning”? With a hug? A cup of coffee? The news? With a song?
Make your good habits memorable!
We made a “good morning” video, years ago, with two of our grandchildren. They are now both teenagers!
Good Morning to You
