I'd like to say that I rose before everyone else, except for The Husband who had already left for work, made coffee and sat in the easy chair in the dining room, my eyes lighting on the perennials in bloom in the yard, the hummingbirds buried deep in the penstemon, the friendly neighbor with the new dog just visible walking down the street, the silence of a sleepy house. I'd like to say that when I went into my sons' room and shook their small shoulders, gently, they rolled over and smiled up at me and said Good morning, Mom.
