WHAT??? You make your own pesto? Well! Would love to get the recipe, if it doesn't involve killing me after I know it, that is!

Three mornings in a row, I've been awake long before that raucious alarm goes off. I think there may be something to this inner alarm clock thing. I know my father was that way,too, and I always marvelled at that. I'm one who can never get enough sleep, at least I used to be. That might have just been depression during some icky times, though. Yes, I am beginning to loooove the quiet of the mornings. Sets the tone for my whole day. Can't believe I've been missing out on that for all of this time. Years, in fact.

Interesting! This FlyLady - is she the sister of the Lord of the Flies? LOL

I am an early-morning guy, especially in summer, in winter not so much. And not only do I detest alarm clocks, I don't need one. I have a 'gift' - its the only way to describe it, and it may well be the only one I have - I can set an 'inner alarm clock' by telling at what time I want to wake up, and I do. And the accuracy of this inner clock still amazes me...

Mind you, it doesn't work all that well, say, after a party...LOL

And one more thing, while I'm at it - yes, I do make my own pesto...

Yes, it does. It took time to make the 'mess' and it will take time to clean it up.

THAT is a fantastic idea with the alarm clock; I asked him to get another one, a more pleasant one, but he didn't want to. There is nothing stopping me from getting one for my side of the bed! What a grrrreat idea!!!

I feel that you are handling this process quite well. It all takes time.

moving forward with purpose
is a great title for a new book and for the rest of your life. I can relate to the getting up early thing you discovered, I discovered it too,not too long ago and it has been a miracle of its own. As for Hildy, she was right, your  mom was wrong, she is the child that  your mother should have protected, and yes of course he would have taken it out on all of the rest of the family if she didnt stand up to him. It seems that she was the only one with the guts to stand up to his whims and your mother destroyed her for it. But as a kid how would you know better when Mother says it,  you usually believe it. Your reallization of what she had done means that you are getting closer to God, which is what you asked for and it is true that "Ask and you shall receive" you asked and received the wisdom. I think you are going to see amazing things if you continue on this road. As for the alarm, I would get a pleasant alarm that would make me smile when I opened my eyes (which for now I am using the sound of the rooster)and set my own alarm an hour before his alarm so in case I dont wake up myself, my alarm would make me smile and I would always wake up with a smile rather than just take a chance. Although I do wake up myself a lot too.

Elyse!
I am sitting here teary-eyed as you are reviewing my findings...I am just more grateful than I can say. I've never remembered a time where there have been more growing pains...but the joy that accompanies is unspeakable. This is really something, here. I'm being helped and I know it. No words for that...

 I can only smile and yes smile largely () because you're moving, not static energy --- you're moving and improving and growing and gathering and harvesting, and sowing and reaping.  It's all aglow (must be that orange oil) - Darson, you've got the gist down in my humble opinion, that when we assess our soul and its worth and we begin by beginnings with our Father - then a certain peaceful flow starts, sometimes to open up pathways that were sullied, barred no trespass, allowing us to declutter (of now past) and walk more confidently with steps pacing overcome and victory - the discovery we now can mark as history.  You've learned a great deal - just this past few months.  I have enjoyed reading of your journey. It blesses me. xoxoxo Elyse and g'morning and g'day.
