Slowing Down

Now that it’s dark in the morning, getting ready for my 6 a.m. run is trickier. Feeling around for a clean pair of running shorts and t-shirt is a lot harder (and louder) in the dark.

Also, Eldyn is back to his old way of coming in to sleep with us at about 5:30 each morning. He always comes equipped with his blanket, a stuffed animal and (the ever-optimist that he is) a book.

It really is getting dark out there. Last Tuesday I made such a ruckus finding my things that Eldyn woke up again at 6. As I was “sneaking” out the door to head down the stairs, I heard his feet. Then I felt his warm little hand slip into mine. “Where are we going, mama?”

I knew right then we weren’t going anywhere. We were staying together and staying put. Even though I missed my run, I wouldn’t have missed that dark morning for anything.
