It’s never been easy for me to get up early in the morning. My kids go to bed around 7 PM and wake up around 6 AM. So I am forced to be a morning person. An early morning person to be exact. However, it’s always so damn hard for me to get up and make breakfast. It has ALWAYS been hard. It’s still hard. But lately, I’ve been enjoying the morning sun and the Nespresso Columbia capsules.
My mom used to always say “look on the bright side of things and you’ll hear God speaking to you in a very clear voice”. I never got that cause I didn’t have good faith in God. I was born into a Christian family and just grew up in that environment without really KNOWING or MEETING God. But one day after having Josh, I woke up in the morning at 5 AM with Josh and while preparing Josh’s breakfast I almost threw the spoon cause I was just so tired and sleepy. it made me so mad. All I wanted was to just sleep for one more hour..!! But what my mom used to say to me ringed in my ear. Like I was hearing things out of the wall. And right then, I heard God say to me “I sacrificed my son’s life for you, you can’t give up one hour of sleep for yours”.
It was like a hammer had hit me in the back of the head. And ever since then, if I have to get up at 5 AM or 6 AM, I get up and make breakfast.
And I also try and enjoy it. Making different things everyday and experimenting. Like this walnut toast with cream cheese and blueberries.
It doesn’t look like the best thing to eat but the walnuts that are in the bread make it extra tasty and give it a little bit of a crunchy chew.
If the kids love it. Then it’s a go.
