This has made such a difference in the way I feel when I get to work that I just have to share.
Every morning, I try to be ready for work at least a half hour before I have to walk out the door. That gives me time for my cherished morning routine. Here's how it goes:
Say my morning prayers after making my bed.
Eat a breakfast and drink my airborne (a MUST!)
Watch a few minutes of the local news or Fox News. (I confess, I fell in love with the anchor of Fox New's America's Newsroom while I was living in DC).
Make a lunch.
Read my scriptures and browse the front page of the newspaper.
Make a cup of cocoa in a thermal mug to take in the car with me.
I promise you - a peaceful morning routine is a piece of heaven on earth. It's exactly what I need to get me charged up for the busy day ahead.
