I wake up slowly in the morning. I watch the trees from my window as I lounge in bed. Usually there are birds flitting around just to make my life more enjoyable.
Then I watch the morning news and some other programs that I regularly watch. I then get dressed and go into the kitchen for breakfast.
It is the way I like to start my day. I feel awake and a bit pampered.
I also know that not everyone is such a slow starter. My youngest sister actually growls if you so much as speak to her before she is awake in the morning. Slow starter.
My siblings and I learned when we were very young not to shake my father or get too close if we had to wake him. He had served in the Navy during WWII. Aboard the ship he had to get up and be ready to go immediately. That training never left him.
When Daddy woke up he jumped straight up to his feet and stood at attention. If you were too close he might knock you right over!
As I said we learned to stay far away. He was an immediate starter.
That training came in handy for me. I married a man who had 4 brothers. All 5 of them were full of vinegar. They loved to pick on each other.
I already knew not to get close when waking a sleeping man. My husband would wake up swinging his fists to ward off whatever foolishness was coming his way.
So my children also knew not to get close to a waking person. Do you wake up fast or slow?
