The Cranky Bug

It's 4.15 am. I'm tired. I feel the "cranky bug" wiggling inside just waiting to jump out and pounce on some unsuspecting soul. Good thing my husband is safe and snug in bed. He has no idea how blessed he is to be there!

Since I went to bed after 10:30 (very late for me) my sleep quota has not been sufficient to get up this early. As I have mentioned before, lack of sleep turns me from a Dr. Jekyll into a Mr. Hyde. Or, is it a Mr. Hyde into a Dr Jekyll. Whatever. I'm too grumpy and tired to try and figure it out.

As I see it, I have two choices. I can go back to bed and hope I can get sufficient sleep or I can stay up and try to come into contact with as few people as possible.

Okay, I have a third option. I can ask God to get rid of the "cranky bug." I can ask him to live his love, patience and kindness out through me. Works every time!

Asking God to rid me of the "cranky bug" but going back to bed, too, Gloria
