I Am Just Waking Up

Updated on July 31, 2014

How Many People Know This Feeling ?

Not now

Give me a minute

I know life is a tornado and I am in the middle of it

Can't it wait

My eyes aren't even open

Some people need their first cup of coffee in the morning

I need a kiss

The weather we will deal with

Car trouble ?

We will get it fixed

I have a few unexpected aches and pains

My mother use to tell me wait till you get old

You will feel sore for no reason at all

You just have to work through it

They don't always go away

You just have to do it

For the most part I am extremely healthy

Age has a way of creeping up and settling in

Ah my back

Ouch as my feet touch the floor

My neck is sore

Oh my arm

Wow that really hurts

As I move my fingers into my muscle

Thinking I can work the pain out

That within a few minutes it will be forgotten

As if magic

Well it use to work when I was younger

Now I am distracted by my knee that popped

At the moment

Walking with a limp is kind of funny

Looking past the bags under my eyes from lack of sleep

Well today is going to be a great day


Because I am alive

Everything else in my life is gravy

Like extras on a turkey dinner

They all our delicious and make the meal

You have to start with the main course

So I am the turkey

I wonder if that is a good or bad thing

Either way I wonder how your day is going ?

Are you just crawling out of bed ?

Did you roll over for an extra ten minutes ?

Did you bounce out of bed like Tigger ?

My day is probably a lot like yours

Busy and busier as the day gets in full swing

I can just imagine a family of five

All different ages

With three kids all wanting different things

As I rub the sleep out of the corner of my eye

Then rub my eyes again

Trying everything I can to get moving

I am going to follow my cat

She got up hours ago

Sitting by the slider watching carefully

As her day gently tickles her whiskers

With the chilly fresh air

She is excited to be here

So am I

I have to get going

One hour just flew by

      Gypsy Rose Lee If we can stay excited about our day from morning to night then we have some life. We can make the good better and accept the bad and change it to make it a little more tolerable. Thank you for reading and sharing.I love hearing about Sid. Aren't cats wonderful.

      So very true everyday that we are given is a great day. Our cat Sid thinks so too he has his routine. Morning head butts and meows in greeting and then he's out into the garden to start his day. In the fall and winter when the days is exceptionally cold and blustery I do love to laze in bed at least half the day.

      RachaelOhalloran I thought it was to read Hubpages and see someones post about How To Fly To The Moon or Right Back At Ya. There are so many reasons to stay in bed and sleep the day away. All those soft pillows piled under your head. The cool sheet tossed across you letting some of the cool air from the window tickle your toes. Your right being alive tops them all for me too. Thank you so much for reading and sharing.

      Well today is going to be a great day


      Because I am alive.

      At my age, it's the best reason for getting out of bed.
