Morning People

I think I’ve discovered a universal truth.

Morning people are team players.

They awake, ready to tackle the day.

Cheerful faces and loud noises.

They say, “Good morning God!”


We, the night owls, are more solitary.

Moving quietly we enjoy the darkness.

We let them sleep, slumber in their beds.

Silent smiles and low volume, key tapping.

We say, “Good God! Morning?” and He smiles.


I live with two morning people, one who wakes singing almost every single day.  I am out numbered and outgunned by their team spirited early morning energy.  I am, however, a dedicated night owl and will quietly move through the night as often as I can when I don’t have to surrender to the morning insanity! 🙂
