~ * * ~
Don't tell me it's that time again.
Crawling out into the cold.
Wait for me.
Walking those stairs to the dark.
Let me go first.
Turn the lights on.
Who got up this early ?
It's wet out.
When isn't it ?
Coffee .. where are you ?

Today I write about getting
up so early with my
Dear Jodie Belle.

Good, hot, fresh coffee & a cat to cuddle, a wonderful way to start a rainy, cold, Pacific Northwest morning.

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
