My thoughts this morning
When Elijah woke me up at 4 a.m. I felt so tired. I got up, warmed a bottle, changed his diaper, and sat in the recliner for his feeding. During the next 20 minutes a battle raged in my mind. Should I go stay up and write, or should I do what I really wanted to do and go back to bed? Robert gets up around six, so I knew I could get in another hour and a half of sleep. Then I really began to think.

My goal this year to become a published author. How in the world do I think this will happen, unless I apply myself DAILY! I must do this even when I don't feel like it. This is a gift from God. If I don't utilize it to the best of my ability, He could choose to take it from me.

So I'm sitting here now, sipping a cup of piping hot coffee, trying to arouse my mind and senses so that I can begin my work for today. I have much to do!!
