I woke up this morning and wished I could have had about one more hour of sleep.  When Maria came downstairs, she was feeling the same way. 

I think a few mornings in a row of sleeping in a bit has gotten our bodies off schedule.

So, today, I am going to have to muster everything inside of me to be alert, ready, and pleasant as a teacher.

Acknowledging what I’m going to need in order to have a happy day is the first step to reaching my goal.

What are you going to need in order to have a happy Monday?

I am so thankful that God’s mercies are new every morning and that He knows what we need before we even ask for it.  I am so thankful that He longs to give good gifts to His children.

He is my everything, and because of Him I can have a happy Monday on a sleepy Monday.

I am praying you can too!
