Two children thump down the stairs like a herd of bison.
Very loud whispering…”OK, Charlotte, here’s what we do.”
“Every morning, we go into Grandma’s room and we say ‘Get up, Grandma, make breakfast.'”
“WAKE UP GRANDMA! MAKE BREAKFAST!”
“Now you do it.”
“It’s OK, she likes it.”
“And then we jump on the bed; come on.”
“Char, you want me to turn the light on?”
He runs over to me, whispers in my ear, “Pretend to be asleep, Grandma.”
“Now you do it, Char!”
A very tiny voice says, “Grandma?”
I respond, “GOOD MORNING, you guys!”
And so my day begins.
Honestly, is there any better way to wake up than to be the first person two angels want to see every morning?
I think not.
