I haven't written the other Life Lessons, by the way. I just didn't think this one was quite important enough to have the title "Life Lesson #1." So, without further ado, Life Lesson #4!
When you've gotten up and started getting ready for the day,
don't go back to bed.
It just never ends well. You think it will when you're settling in and your bed is sooooo comfy. But when you wake up two hours later with a weird headache; your child is still waiting patiently for breakfast, bless her heart; and somehow you feel way more tired than when you laid down and wonder if your eyelids have weights on them or are just glued down... - Well, let's just say, it's a good time to learn a Life Lesson. Now get out of bed and go make yourself some lunch.
We didn’t have to consciously focus on how grateful we were to be here, to be alive, because nature announced its marvels, and we felt it deep in our bodies and souls.
