Truth: I'm a better person when I get up early and have a little quiet time before I start my day. That time with the Lord--however brief--makes a difference in my actions. My outlook.
It changes my life.
But there's another truth that I can't deny: Getting up early is unbelievably difficult as a D-Mom.
When you are riding the BG rollercoaster, like we've been riding recently, I'm so very tired. Kevin is tired. Yes, we're both a little grumpy.
But here's yet one more truth: A little time with the Lord changes my attitude. It gives me strength for another day.
It makes me thankful for another day.

I probably take a different spin on this group than most participants. I use it as accountability to have some quiet time at some point in the morning. It may not be first thing for me.
It occurred me recently that God knows when I am beyond exhausted.
He knows if I was up every hour taking care of Matthew.
He knows and most importantly, He understands! There is no need for me to feel guilty for needing extra sleep.
Most people in this world do not understand the exhaustion of diabetes. But God does!
