Dear Santa

Dear Santa,

It has been over 30 years since I last wrote to you. Please forgive me. Thank you for all the gifts you have given me and my loved ones in the past. The Christmas memories have been priceless.

This year I do have a request. Could you reach into your bag of magical gifts and turn me into a Morning Person? I want to be able to get up at 5:00am feeling energetic and refreshed from a full night's sleep. I want to be clear headed and able to concentrate on my writing.

And could you make it so that my getting up early does not rouse any of my children, for that is counter productive. I want this time alone, to read my Bible, pray and work on my writing.

If you can't turn me into a Morning Person, could you bestow on me energy that lasts fully until 11:00pm or even mid-night? I would like to be clear headed and focused late into the evening. Not just awake on the couch, vegging in front of the TV, but creative and productive.

You see, the daytime hours that are my best are also taken up with necessary daily tasks that demand my attention and concentration. So you can see how I need these extra hours of high energy time added to my day. And if I could have these hours without the risk of migraines that lack of sleep usually causes, that would be wonderful.

Thank you,


p.s. If you can't give me this request, could you please help me carve out writing time with my current limited hours in the day?

This is funny. I love it. Once I can actually get myself out of bed, I am the cheeriest morning person you've ever seen. That's when I get all my best work done. After lunch, don't count on much productivity from me!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Hi Tiffany!

So glad you droppped by my blog...I love meeting new people! You're welcome back anytime!

I really enjoyed reading your post and it's definitely something that I can relate to! I get up every morning at 5:15 AM to see my oldest daughter off to high school. I wouldn't call myself an especially "cheerful" person at that hour, but it's just part of the routine. I do wish there were more hours in the day so that I could get more accomplished.

Hope you have a great Friday!

You are such a good writer. I can't wait to read through more of your posts. I'm adding this blog to my list, too, and I'm sharing it with my daughter, who does have enough time to write.

I think morning personitis is hereditary. I am not a morning person - neither is my second born, yet first born and her dad are up at the crack of dawn...

merry christmas and thanks for popping by.
