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.
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?
